Author information

  • 1Department of Chemistry, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, California 94720-1460, USA.


A unified approach toward the taiwaniaquinoids that has yielded four natural products is described. A new variant of the Nazarov reaction with concomitant formation of an enol triflate serves as one of the key steps, considerably shortening the synthetic scheme and providing a general entry into this class of bioactive natural products.
