Biomimetic Synthesis and Structural Revision of (±)-Tridachiahydropyrone Academic Article uri icon


  • A short synthesis of the revised structure of the marine natural product tridachiahydropyrone is described. A novel biomimetic photochemical electrocyclization was employed to construct the bicyclic carbon framework from an open-chain polyene precursor. The spectroscopic data matched that of the isolated natural product, supporting a revised structure of this complex metabolite.
