Total synthesis of hybocarpone, a cytotoxic naphthazarin derivative from the lichen Lecanora hybocarpa, and related compounds.


PMID 25632480

Abstract

The concise synthesis of the lichen-derived antitumor agent hybocarpone (1) and its analogs is described. A new synthetic approach is based on the direct oxidative dimerization of the available naphthazarin precursors in the formation of the binaphtho[2,3-b; 2,3-d]furantetraone structure. It was shown that the first step to tetrahydrofuran features is the bridging hindered S*,S* and R*,S* carbon-carbon bonds of the molecules, setting the relative configurations of the 5aS*,6aS*,12aS*,12bS* and 5aS*,6aR*,12aR*,12bS* diastereomers.
