Mehta, Goverdhan and Murthy, Sai Krishna A (2003) The first total synthesis of the novel triquinane natural products pleurotellol and pleurotellic acid. In: Tetrahedron Letters, 44 (28). pp. 5243-5246.
The first total synthesis of the triquinane based sesquiterpenoid antibiotics (±)-pleurotellol and (±)-pleurotellic acid isolated from the fermentation broth of Pleurotellus hypnophilus have been accomplished. The triquinane based bis-enone system obtained via photo-thermal metathesis in a caged pentacyclic dione has been elaborated to the natural products through carefully crafted functional group transformations.
