Haouamine B Progress

Posted by naturalproductman on January 20, 2011

Yoshiki Morimoto and co-workers from Osaka City University have published in Chemical Communications on their progress towards haouamine B.  Phil Baran and co-worker have published on a synthesis of haouamine A – however, haouamine B, which differs from the A form by a hydroxy group in one of the aryl rings (the one fused to the five membered ring), is less stable than A and has not been synthesized yet.
