The synthesis of (-)-cis- and (-)-trans-crobarbatic acid
- The synthesis of both cis- and trans-crobarbatic acid is reported. The five-step sequence proceeds in high yield and with control of both relative and absolute stereochemistry. The key step in the synthesis is the Birch reductive alkylation of a chiral furoic acid which sets the absolute stereochemistry of the products. The stereochemistry of the compounds described was proven unambiguously by X-ray crystallography on one synthetic intermediate and on trans-crobarbatic acid.
