Simple Synthesis of Enantiomerically Pure Sauriols A and B
Sauriols A and B belong to a class of diarylbutane-lignans and exhibit antifeedant activity. We succeeded in the first synthesis of sauriols A and B by using a simple and efficient asymmetric dimerization of a cinnamic acid derivative as the key step.
