Strategies and Tactics Inspired by Complex Natural Products
Abstract: Despite the growing belief that "we can synthesize any organic molecule we want", there still remains a need to develop new strategies and methods to make organic synthesis more efficient. Natural products provide intricate problems that challenge us to make advances in this regard. Several themes, and their application to the synthesis of the icetexane diterpenoids, the cortistatin steroidal alkaloids, C-19 norditerpenoid alkaloids and several Lycopodium alkaloids, will be discussed.
