- A high-yielding total asymmetric synthesis of (-)-martinellic acid is reported. The conjugate addition of lithium (R)-N-allyl-N-(α-methyl-4-methoxybenzyl)amide to tert-butyl (E)-3-[2'-(N,N-diallylamino)-5'-bromophenyl]propenoate and alkylation of the resultant β-amino ester have been used as the key steps to install the C(9b) and C(3a) stereogenic centers, respectively, and a highly diastereoselective Wittig reaction/intramolecular Michael addition was then used to create the C(4) stereogenic center within this tricyclic molecular architecture.
