Abstract

The synthesis of optically active [N-tosyl-(R)-prolyloxy]-2(S)-[4-cyano-8,8-ethylenedioxy-5-oxo-5,6,7,8-tetrahydroindolizin-3-yl] acetate (4a), a key intermediate forthe total asymmetric synthesis of 20(S)-camptothecin anticancer drugs, is described. Itsstructure was characterized by 2D-NMR techniques and the absolute configuration wasfurther confirmed for the first time by X-ray crystal structure analysis. View Full-Text
