Hydrogen atom abstraction reactions in organic synthesis. A formal total synthesis of racemic podophyllotoxinThe Journal of Organic Chemistry
Publication VersionPublished Version
The key step in a synthesis of 1 was a tandem photoenolization/Diels-Alder reaction to produce 11. Hydrolysis of the acetal and ester followed by oxidation afforded 15, an advanced intermediate in the Meyers synthesis of 1.
