α-Tertiary Amines en Route to Natural Products presents the multistep synthesis of natural products using schematic diagrams. This approach provides a quick-and-easy way to review and understand new and novel synthetic strategies to construct structural frameworks of natural products. The book covers the class of natural products bearing the α,α-disubstituted α-amino acid motif. Featured natural product molecules include Altemicidin, Amathaspiramide (A-F), Kaitocephalin, Lactacystin, Salinosporamide, Manzacidins (A,C), Neooxazolomycin, Sphingofungins (E,F), (1S,3R)-1-Aminocyclopentane-1,3-diarboxylic Acid (ACPD), Total synthesis of cephalotaxine and related molecules, α-amino acids based natural products, α amino acid based natural products and Tetrodotoxin.
This book is ideal for chemists working in the area of organic synthesis, especially those who are involved in the development of new, efficient and novel methodologies for natural product synthesis.
- Outlines synthetic strategies for natural products bearing α-tertiary amines and α,α-disubstituted α-amino acid motif
- Describes multistep synthetic routes that highlight key steps
- Covers asymmetric and diastereoselective synthetic approaches towards targeted natural products
- Illustrates multistep synthetic routes related to -amino acids based natural products and -amino acids based natural products
