Backbone rearrangements of methyl (-)-kaur-9(11)-en-19-oate and its epoxide: structures of two diterpenes of a new skeletal type


Journal Article

cleavage of the epoxide (2) of methyl (-)-kaur-9(11)-en-19-oate (1b) with boron trifluoride-ether in benzene and in acetic anhydride yielded (3a) and (3b), respectively. On epoxidation with m-chloroperbenzoic acid in the presence of N-nitrosomethyl urea, (1b) suffered a backbone rearrangement to form (6). © 1982.
