Total Synthesis of Diocollettines A via an Acid-Promoted Oxa-Michael-Aldol-Acetalization Cascade.

Summary of "Total Synthesis of Diocollettines A via an Acid-Promoted Oxa-Michael-Aldol-Acetalization Cascade."

A diastereo- and enantioselective total synthesis of diocollettines A with an unusual oxygen-containing tricyclic ring system has been achieved in 63% overall yield from commercially available 3-phenylpropanal via four steps. The key feature of the present synthesis is an exclusively diastereoselective cascade sequence composed of a -selective oxa-Michael addition of 1,3-dihydroxyacetone to a 2,3-dihydropyrylium ion intermediate, intramolecular aldol-type reaction, and intramolecular acetalization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A 20-carbon branched chain fatty acid. In phytanic acid storage disease (REFSUM DISEASE) this lipid may comprise as much as 30% of the total fatty acids of the plasma. This is due to a phytanic acid alpha-hydroxylase deficiency.

A very strong halogenated derivative of acetic acid. It is used in acid catalyzed reactions, especially those where an ester is cleaved in peptide synthesis.

Enzymes that catalyze a reverse aldol condensation. A molecule containing a hydroxyl group and a carbonyl group is cleaved at a C-C bond to produce two smaller molecules (ALDEHYDES or KETONES). EC 4.1.2.

Gastric analysis for determination of free acid or total acid.

An unsaturated, essential fatty acid. It is found in animal and human fat as well as in the liver, brain, and glandular organs, and is a constituent of animal phosphatides. It is formed by the synthesis from dietary linoleic acid and is a precursor in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes.
