Mehta, Goverdhan and Nandakumar, Jayakrishnan (2001) Restructuring \alpha-pinene: novel entry into diverse polycarbocyclic frameworks. In: Tetrahedron Letters, 42 (43). pp. 7667-7670.
(-)-\alpha-Pinene 1 has been restructured into a chiral cyclohexenone (+)-6, in which the functionalities were integrated to afford bicyclo[3.3.1]nonan 3,7-diones and a novel tricyclic skeleton 16 related to the sesquiterpene clovene. Intramolecular [2+2]photocycloadditions in (+)-6 and related 5 alkenylcyclohexenones provided an entry into some novel bridged tricyclic systems.
