Abstract
‘Dibal'lin’ on a budget: The enantioselective total syntheses of transtaganolides A-D are rapidly achieved by a highly diastereoselective Ireland-Claisen/Diels-Alder cascade reaction of an enantioenriched geraniol derivative. Based on X-ray diffraction data, the absolute configuration of these metabolites is established and discussed within the context of existing biosynthetic hypotheses.
