The NARC-Based Approach to the Enantioselective Synthesis of the Zaragozic Acids. Synthesis of a C 5-Alkoxycarbonyl-Substituted 2,8-Dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane. Academic Article uri icon


  • A direct method for the preparation of C 5-alkoxycarbonyl-substituted 2,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octanes is described. The key process involves a highly stereoselective (NARC) sequence of a nucleophilic addition followed by ring closure.
