Progress Toward the Total Synthesis of Salvadione-A and Related Diterpenoids


Greene, Blake Bennet (2004) Progress Toward the Total Synthesis of Salvadione-A and Related Diterpenoids. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/AAPZ-W246.


Herein, we report our progress toward the total synthesis of salvadione-A, a structurally complex triterpenoid isolated from Salvia bucharica. We document a model system of our tandem Claisen/Cope/Diels-Alder strategy. Additionally, we describe the evolution of our strategy toward the synthesis of three structurally related diterpenoids-coulterone, cyclocoulterone, and komaroviquinone--from a cyclopropanation/Friedel-Crafts route to an anionic homo-Fries/intramolecular Barbier cyclization pathway.
