Abstract

The tricyclic core of 5α-capnellenols was synthesized using an asymmetric Heck reaction-carbanion capture process and an intramolecular nitrile oxide cycloaddition as key ring construction steps. Moreover, the desired C5-α-OH product was obtained through a retroaldol and aldol epimerization process of the C5-β-OH tricyclic compound.
