Total Synthesis of Putative Structure of Asperipin-2a and Stereochemical Reassignment

This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


The total synthesis of the putative structure of asperipin-2a is described. The synthesis features ether cross-links between the phenolic oxygen of Tyr6 and β position of Tyr3 and the phenolic oxygen of Tyr3 and the β position of Hpp1 in the unique 17- and 14-membered bicyclic structure of asperipin-2a, respectively. The synthesized putative structure does not match the natural product and a stereochemical reassignment is postulated.
