"Synthetic Discoveries from Polycyclic Natural Products"


"In  the  pursuit  of  the  synthesis  of  biologically  active  natural  products (compounds  originally  isolated  from  natural  sources),  powerful  reactions  using organic or acid catalysts (i.e., not transition metal based) have been developed. The   new   chemical   transformations   thus   made   available,   along   with   the extraordinary  chemical  compatibility  the  new  catalysts  provide,  have  enabled access to a variety of new target motifs for synthesis. Increased understanding of the catalytic mechanism and of the role of each reaction component have also led  to  additional  applications  of  the  mechanistic  paradigm  to  new  chemical"
"transformations that utilize other classes of catalysts."
