Stereodivergent access to rocaglaol enabled by dual catalytic asymmetric allylation

Byungjun Kim, Sarah Yunmi Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


In a recent issue of Chem, Liu and Feng et al. report a stereodivergent allylation of benzofuran-3(2H)-one catalyzed by two chiral metal catalysts, a phosphoramidite-Ir complex and an N,N′-dioxide-ligated Lewis acid, and its application to the selective total synthesis of eight stereoisomers of rocaglaol, one of the flavagline-family bioactive molecules.
