Synthetic studies on naphthyridinomycin: A total synthesis of (+)-cyanocycline A
Doctor of Philosophy
A synthetic route via chiral precursor 74* had led to a total synthesis of (+)-cyanocycline A. This optically pure synthesis unequivocally determined the absolute stereochemistry of natural cyanocycline A as 2, in contrast to a previously reported X-ray crystallographic assignment as presented on 2$\prime$. ftn*Please refer to dissertation for diagrams.
