Synthesis of a precursor to quassimarinThe Journal of Organic Chemistry
Publication VersionPublished Version
AbstractAn intermediate containing the ACE ring system of quassimarin was prepared. The isopropylidene malonate 8 reacted with diene 2 to afford two Diels-Alder adducts. The major adduct was converted into lactone 11 by a sequence involving epoxidation followed by acid-mediated epoxide opening and lactonization.
