Abstract

An enantiocontrolled synthesis of the monocyclic bisabolene-type sesquiterpenoids (+)-curcuquinone 1 and (-)-curcuhydroquinone 2 has been accomplished using a porcine pancreatic lipase (PPL)-mediated desymmetrization of the prochiral σ-symmetrical 2-aryl-1,3-propanediol 6 as the key reaction step.
