Abstract: The commercially available monoterpene carvone has been efficiently convertedinto the tricyclo[3.2.1.02.7]octane and bicyclo[3.2.1]octane systems characteristic of somebiologically active compounds. The sequence used for this transformation involves as keyfeatures an intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction of a 5-vinyl-1,3-cyclohexadiene and acyclopropane ring opening.
Keywords: Carvone; Diels-Alder reaction; cyclopropane cleavage; 5-vinyl-1; 3- cyclohexadiene; samarium diiodide; bicyclo[3.2.1]octane; tricyclo[3.2.1.02.7]octane
