First Total Syntheses of TetracenomycinsC and X. Academic Article uri icon


  • The first total syntheses of tetracenomycinsC and X were achieved, featuring 1)preparation of a hexasubstituted naphthonitrile oxide by successive benzyne cycloadditions and an oxidative ring-opening reaction; 2)a novel ortho-quinone mono-acetal as the A-ring unit; 3)construction of three contiguous stereogenic centers by an asymmetric benzoin cyclization, an isoxazole oxidation, and a stereoselective reduction.
