Pérez-Estrada, S.; Sayar, N.; Granja, J. R. ?Towards Taxane Analogues Synthesis by Dieneyne Ring Closing Meathesis? Org. Chem. Front. 2016, 3, 1331-1336, DOI: 10.1039/c6qo00321d.
Herein we report the facile construction of taxadiene analogues by ring closing metathesis of dienynes built on a cyclohexenone with a natural configuration at C1 and its further transformation to incorporate most of the key functional groups of taxol.
