Mehta, Goverdhan and Islam, Kabirul (2004) Enantioselective total synthesis of epoxyquinone natural products (−)-phyllostine, (+)-epoxydon, (+)-epiepoxydon and (−)-panepophenanthrin: access to versatile chiral building blocks through enzymatic kinetic resolution. In: Tetrahedron Letters, 45 (41). pp. 7683-7687.
A new enzyme mediated protocol to access versatile chiral building blocks for the synthesis of epoxyquinone natural products is delineated. Total syntheses of (−)-phyllostine, (+)-epoxydon, (+)-epiepoxydon and (−)-panepophenanthrin have been accomplished to demonstrate the efficacy of this approach.
