• Approaches towards C-10-hydroxylated analogues of narciclasine

      Ticli, Vincenzo; Department of Chemistry
      Discussed in this thesis is the synthesis of a C10-benzyloxy unnatural derivative of narciclasine. The described approach involves the use of homochiral cyclohexadiene diols, products of the biocatalytic transformation of aromatic compounds, as precursors to ring C, and of highly oxygenated aromatic molecules to construct ring A. The document also reports a detailed account of the protocols studied for the intramolecular formation of ring B. Experimental data and spectral data are provided for the novel compounds.
