Chemistry and Pharmacology
Employing thujone-derived intermediates, a series of achiral (9a-d; Scheme 1) and chiral (11b and 11d; Scheme 2) terpene analogues related to the biologically active ‘terpenoid’ hybrids have been prepared. The stereochemistry of the key epoxidation reaction was established by correlation of the product 11b with the previously reported alcohol (R)-20 of known absolute configuration (Scheme 3).
