Formal synthesis of kingianin A based upon a novel electrochemically-induced radical cation Diels-Alder reaction Academic Article uri icon


  • The application of electrochemical reactions in natural product synthesis has burgeoned in recent years. We herein report a formal synthesis of the complex and dimeric natural product kingianin A, which employs an electrochemically-mediated radical cation Diels–Alder cycloaddition as the key step.
