The Synthesis of Cyclic Ether-Containing Natural and Non-natural Products by Metathesis Reactions

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Synthesis of Heterocycles by Metathesis Reactions

Part of the book series: Topics in Heterocyclic Chemistry ((TOPICS,volume 47))

Abstract

This chapter describes recent advances (2005–2015) in the use of metathesis reactions to construct the cyclic ether portions in the total synthesis of natural products. Advances in the synthesis of a range of marine polyether natural products are presented, and various strategic approaches to the bridged pyran-macrocycles neopeltolide and kendomycin are discussed. Finally, the synthesis of a range of biologically active, cyclic ether-based non-natural products is described.
