Double trouble — the art of synthesis of chiral dimeric natural products
Wezeman, Tim, Masters, Kye-Simeon, & Brase, Stefan (2014) Double trouble — the art of synthesis of chiral dimeric natural products. Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 53(18), pp. 4524-4526.
Double or nothing! Recently the total ynthesis of secalonic acids A and D was reported. This work and other natural product syntheses with a dimerization step as a common feature are featured in this highlight. The significant biological activity of the secalonic acids and the fact that their synthesis has fascinated synthetic chemists for the past forty years make this work a milestone in natural product synthesis.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
