Abstract: A synthetic route developed for the preparation of the A-ring of Taxol family of molecules is reported. By means of an intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction an asymmetric approach to this ring has been accomplished. Also, initial studies to prepare the A ring using an intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction have been successful.
Keywords: Taxol; cation-mediated cascade cyclisation; asymmetric Diels-Alder reaction
