Synthesis of the erythrina alkaloid 3-demethoxyerythratidinone. Novel acid-induced rearrangements of its precursors.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

[reaction: see text] A new strategy for the synthesis of 3-demethoxyerythratidinone has been developed and is based on an extraordinarily facile intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction of a 2-imido-substituted furan. During the course of the synthesis, several novel acid-induced rearrangement reactions were encountered.
