Abstract

An overview of the synthesis of the fungal metabolites (+)-dermolactone, (–)- semixanthomegnin, (+)- and (–)-mellein, (–)-ochratoxin α, (–)-(1R,3S)-thysanone, the enantiopure ventiloquinones L, E and G, and 8-desmethyleleutherin from a common chiral intermediate, is presented. Further methodology leading potentially toward extended quinones such as (3S,3'S)-xylindein is also outlined.
Keywords: Stereospecific synthesis; fungal metabolites; quinones; isochromanones. Stereospecific synthesis; fungal metabolites; quinones; isochromanones.
