Abstract

A synthetic approach is described to the asymmetric synthesis of ascochlorin (1), an antiviral antibiotic, based on the construction of a sesquiterpene unit via asymmetric Diels-Alder reaction of tigloyl sultam 4 & butadiene, and the introduction of the aromatic side chain (C9-C12 unit) by employing cuprate chemistry.
