Abstract

The use of iodobenzene diacetate and iodine under photolytic conditions provides and efficient method for the oxidative cyclization of spiroacetals bearing an hydroxyalkyl side chain to bis-spiroacetals. An overview is provided of the use of this reaction for the synthesis of several bis-spiroacetal containing natural products such as the polyether antibiotics salinomycin and CP44,161 and the shellfish toxins, the spirolides.
Keywords: Spiroacetals; bis-spiroacetals; oxidative radical cyclization Spiroacetals; bis-spiroacetals; oxidative radical cyclization
