Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Towards the synthesis of the novel natural product Agariblazeispirol C, (5aR*,11bR*)-9-methoxy-3,8,11b-trimethyl-5,6,7,11b-tetrahydro-1H-pentaleno[1,6a-a]naphthalen-4(2H)-one, C20H24O2, has been prepared at a key stage of the preparative programme. The structure shows the desired stereochemical outcome of the central cyclization protocol, viz. a syn-relationship between the aliphatic methyl group on the 11b-position and the methylene group on the 5a-position [C-C-C-C = -34.57 (18)degrees].
