Towards the Total Synthesis of 1α,25-dihydroxylumisterol

Alan Partridge
This thesis is divided into three chapters. The first chapter provides a brief review on recent work in the application of cascade cyclisations to the total synthesis of natural products. This is followed by a review of the decarboxylative Claisen rearrangement (dCr), a novel variant of the Ireland-Claisen reaction in which tosylacetic esters of allylic alcohols are transformed into homoallylic sulfones using BSA and potassium acetate, and its applications. The second chapter discusses the results...
