Title: Synthesis of Five Analogues of Sarcophytol A

Abstract: The synthesis of five analogs of Sarcophytol A is described. All five compounds are composed of a six membered ring with an alcohol substituent at C-1 and varying substituents at C- 2 and C-4. The 4-phenylcyclohexanol series of compounds begin their synthesis with commercially available 4-phenylcyclohexanone while the 4-isopropylidene cyclohexanol series of compounds is derived from a common synthetic intermediate. This intermediate is efficiently synthesized from commercially available beta-pinene in four steps. The steps include (a) ozonolysis, (b) carbonylation of nopinone, (c) Lewis-acid induced cleavage of the cyclobutane ring and (d) elimination of the tertiary center to generate the requisite isopropylidene moiety at C-4.
