Vittatalactone Synthesis

Posted by naturalproductman on January 31, 2011

Christoph Schneider and co-workers at Universitat Leipzig have published in Chem Comm on their total synthesis of vittatalactone, which involves an oxy-Cope rearrangement to place the carbons in the correct position with unsaturation followed by an asymmetric reduction to yield the methyls in the correct stereochemical arrangement.
