Abstract

The formal enantioselective total synthesis of nemorosone, garsubellin A, clusianone, and hyperforin is described. The catalytic asymmetric intramolecular cyclopropanation (CAIMCP) of an α-diazo ketone, a common synthetic intermediate for the above four polycyclic polyprenylated acylphloroglucinols previously reported by us, exhibited low enantioselectivity. However, CAIMCP of the corresponding α-diazo β-keto sulfone afforded the desired product in 79% yield with 84% ee. Investigation of the CAIMCP of the α-diazo β-keto sulfone demonstrated the formation of a rearrangement product in the presence of molecular sieves 4 Å, whereas, in the presence of H2O, the byproduct derived from ring-opening of the desired cyclopropane was observed. X-ray crystallographic analysis suggested that the above two products are derived from the same chiral intermediate. The product derived from ring-opening of the cyclopropane was successfully transformed to the respective synthetic intermediates for the total syntheses of nemorosone, garsubellin A, clusianone, and hyperforin, which had previously been reported by us.
