Psiguadial B synthesis

Posted by naturalproductman on August 2, 2016

Sarah Reisman and co-workers have reported in JACS on the synthesis of psiguadial B. The key step was a Wolff rearrangement using a Honeywell UV lamp. The supporting information has a nice picture of the reaction set up. It looks like you just shine the lamp next to the reaction flask with aluminum foil around it.
