Aspeverin synthesis

Posted by naturalproductman on August 30, 2014

Adam Levinson at Sloan Kettering has reported in Organic Letters on the synthesis of aspeverin. Interestingly, Danishefsky was acknowledged for the mentorship but not included in the authors list. I wonder if this is a new kind of way to publish.
