Enantioselective Synthesis of 15-Deoxy-Δ¹²,¹⁴-Prostaglandin J₂


An enantioselective synthesis of 15-deoxy-Δ¹²,¹⁴-prostaglandin J₂ is reported. The synthesis begins with the preparation of enantiopure 3-oxodicyclopentadiene by a lipase-mediated kinetic resolution. A three-component coupling followed by a retro-Diels–Alder reaction provides the C8 stereochemistry of the prostaglandin skeleton with high enantioselectivity. Stereoretentive olefin metathesis followed by a Pinnick oxidation affords 15-deoxy-Δ¹²,¹⁴-prostaglandin J₂ in high enantiopurity.
