Rizzo, Antonio and Trauner, Dirk (2018): Toward (-)-Enterocin: An Improved Cuprate Barbier Protocol To Overcome Strain and Sterical Hindrance. In: Organic Letters, Vol. 20, No. 7: pp. 1841-1844

Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


An approach toward (-)-enteiocin, an antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces hygroscopicus, is described. Its compact, heavily oxidized protoadamantane core represents a daunting challenge for an efficient synthesis. Convergent assembly of its 2-oxabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane core with a cuprate-mediated Barbier reaction is disclosed. Its functionalization to a suitable substrate for a biomimetic aldol to close the final ring of the natural product is evaluated.
