Abstract: Isoxazoline analogues of artemisinin were obtained in low yield and low diastereoselectivity from the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of nitrile oxides. Alternatively, starting from the aldehyde 7, a number of transformations - Wittig reaction and reduction, Henry reaction and cyanohydrin formation - were achieved in significantly higher yields. In the cases where a new stereocenter was introduced this occured diastereoselectively.
Keywords: Artemisinin; ring contraction; aldehyde; 1; 3-dipolar cycloaddition; nitrile oxide
