Total Synthesis of Maoecrystal V

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In model study of Maoecrystal V, the skeleton of the natural product was successfully established, and three contiguous chiral centers, C8, C9, C10, were also built. Based on the information supplied by model research, the total synthesis of Maoecrystal V was developed.
