Mehta, Goverdhan and Lakshminath, Sripada (2000) A norbornyl route to cyclohexitols: stereoselective synthesis of conduritol-E, allo-inositol, MK 7607 and gabosines. In: Tetrahedron Letters, 41 (18). pp. 3509-3512.
A novel fragmentation sequence within the norbornane system, involving C1–C7 bond scission, provides convenient access to a highly functionalized and versatile cyclohexenoid building block which has been further elaborated to a range of cyclohexitols such as, conduritol E, allo-inositol and gabosine B. Our synthesis of the structure corresponding to gabosine K indicates that the structure of this natural product needs to be revised.
