The remarkable effect of cosolvent on a samarium(II)-mediated 4-exo-trig cyclization: Further synthetic studies on pestalotiopsin A

Author(s): D. J. Edmonds, K. W. Muir, D. J. Procter

Abstract:
A samarium(II)-mediated 4-exo-trig cyclization in which a remote stereocenter serves to control the facial selectivity of the cyclization is described. The apparent coordination of a tert-butyldimethylsilyl ether to the samarium center appears to give rise to the selectivity. The remarkable effect of the cosolvent, 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol, on the cyclization of this substrate, is also discussed. A stereoselective synthesis of the general class of gamma,delta-unsaturated aldehyde cyclization substrate is reported, and the utility of the cyclization is demonstrated in an approach to the fully functionalized core of pestalotiopsin A.
