Asymmetric Synthesis of the Antiviral Diterpene Wickerol A

Jacs
Asymmetric Synthesis of the Antiviral Diterpene Wickerol A: Wickerol A (1) is an unusual diterpene with remarkable activity against the H1N1 influenza virus. Its tetracyclic skeleton contains three quaternary carbons and is marked by several syn-pentane interactions which force a six-membered ring into a twist-boat conformation. We present an asymmetric synthesis of wickerol A (1) that is based on a Jung Diels–Alder reaction...
