Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskriftPeer review


Conjugate addition of Meldrum's acid to 2-cyclohexenone followed by direct cyclization in PPA/acetic acid constitutes a shorter, more reproducible and higher yielding route to bicyclo[2.2.2]octane-2,6-dione than previous methods. The crude dione could be used as substrate for the baker's yeast reduction to (IR, 4S, 6S)-bicyclo[2.2.2]octane-6-ol-2-one.
