Abstract

The development of a stereoselective one-pot oxidative [3,3] sigmatropic rearrangement/Friedel-Crafts arylation that provides enantioenriched benzhydryl compounds is reported. The utility of this new transformation is demonstrated by the concise synthesis of several tetralone- and naphthyl-type lignan natural products, many of which display anti-malarial activity.
