The cetal group is stable under the reaction conditions utilized during the elimination of the ester group and the introduction of the hydroxyl group on C-3. At the same time, it enables the regeneration of the methylketone and exocyclic double bond presented by methyl 13-oxo-14,15-dinorlabd-8(17)en-19-oate. The latter compound was previously used to construct the B C D-ring of these quassinoids. q 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. 1. Introduction In a previous paper we reported the efficient preparation of the tetracyclic derivative 3, a possible intermediate in the synthesis of pentacyclic quassinoids from communic acids (1a c) via methylketone 2 (Scheme 1). 1 3 presents the B, C and D rings suitably functionalized to construct the B C D E framework of such quassinoids, but the elaboration of the A ring of quassinoids from this intermediate is likely to be difficult. Thus we have investigated how to functionalize the A ring during the early steps of the synthetic sequence, before creating the B C D E system. We believed that cetal 4, the preparation of which, from 1a c in a 3-step sequence, we have reported elsewhere, 1,2 could well be suitable for this purpose. Cetal 4, bearing the methylketone and exocyclic double-bond groups as masked functions, would allow us to functionalize the A ring according to the method we have described previously. 3 Thus, the functionalized cetal A would be prepared and then the regeneration of methylketone and the exocyclic double bond would lead to B, which, following the previously developed synthetic sequence utilized to convert 2 into 3, 1 would provide the tetracyclic intermediate C. The whole ring of this compound is suitably functionalized, and thus Keywords: Quassinoids; Labdane diterpenes; Acetal cleavage; Wolff Kishner elimination. * Corresponding author. Tel./fax: C ; pentacyclic quassinoids, as bruceantin, may be obtained (Scheme 1). In this paper we report a procedure to create the methylketone and exocyclic double bond groups from the cetal function in 4, in addition to two methods to functionalize the A ring of Results and discussion We began by investigating methods to create methylketone and exocyclic double-bond groups from cetal 4, the preparation of which from 1a c via the reduction derivatives 5a b, has now been considerably improved. 5a b was converted into 4 in one-pot reaction, without isolating the intermediate methylketone 2. Our previous studies revealed that the TiCl 4 -catalysed nucleophilic cleavage of cetal could be used to this end. 4 We assayed the reaction of 4 with TiCl 4 in the presence of Et 3 SiH as the nucleophile under various conditions. 5 The most significant results are shown in Table 1 (Scheme 2). As can be seen, good yields of oxane derivatives 6a b were always obtained. Formate 7 showed similar reactivity, affording a 1:1 mixture of oxanes 8a b when treated at K78 8C. The epimeric mixture 6a b was used as the starting material to prepare methylketone 2. The key step in the sequence was the C O cleavage of the a-alkoxyaldehydes 9a b under /$ - see front matter q 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. doi: /j.tet

These were transformed into methylketone 2 by Jones reagent. In a similar way 8a b was transformed into methylketone 13. After the procedure to transform cetals 4 and 7 into the corresponding methylketones 2 and 13 had been established, we undertook the functionalization of the A rings of 4 and 7. Two synthetic sequences were developed to achieve our objective, the key step of both being the Baeyer Villiger rearrangement of aldehyde 15 to give the formate 7. 3 The refluxing of a solution of 15 in CH 2 Cl 2 in the presence of MCPBA afforded formate 7, which underwent the regioselective elimination of formic acid by heating with collidine, thus yielding 16. The treatment of 16 with SeO 2 tbuooh in CH 2 Cl 2 gave alcohol 17 which was converted into ketone 18 after oxidation with PCC, reduction with Raney nickel 7 and epimerization with MeONa in MeOH (Scheme 4). We also assayed an alternative route to 18 from 7, involving saponification, dehydration and oxidation. By treating 7 with KOH in methanol we obtained nor-alcohol 19. The dehydration of 19 with MsCl and pyridine at room temperature yielded a 1:4 mixture of regiosomers 16 and 20. By treating this under reflux with Na 2 CrO 4 in the presence of NaAcO, Ac 2 O and AcOH we obtained b-enone 21, the exocyclic alkene 16 being recovered unaltered. The b-enone 21 was transformed under Birch reduction conditions into ketone 18, which, after reduction with sodium borohydride, was transformed into 22, which bears the characteristic A-ring functionalization pattern of the postulated intermediates in the synthesis of pentacyclic quassinoids, 8 with the appropriate configuration on C-3 and C-4 (Scheme 5).

3 E. J. Alvarez-Manzaneda et al. / Tetrahedron 61 (2005) In summary, cetal 4 is a key intermediate for synthesizing pentacyclic quassinoids from communic acids (1a c). This cetal is efficiently converted into the functionalized A-ring compound 22 via a 7-step sequence at a 10% overall yield. 4 is also transformed into methylketone 2, a precursor of the B C D E ring system of quassinoids, via a 4-step sequence at a 65% overall yield. The successive development of both synthetic sequences will enable to convert 4 into the intermediate B, which will then be transformed, following our described procedure, 1 into C, a very advanced precursor of quassinoids General 3.

Alvarez-Manzaneda et al. / Tetrahedron 61 (2005) resonance spectra were taken on a Bruker AMX 300 (300 MHz), Bruker ARX 400 (400 MHz) and Bruker AMX 500 (500 MHz) spectrometers using CDCl 3, and CD 3 - COCD 3 as solvent and TMS or residual protic solvent CHCl 3 (d H Z7.25 ppm) as internal reference, and the multiplicity of a signal is a singlet unless otherwise stated, when the following abbreviations are used: s, singlet; bs, broad singlet; d, doublet; bd, broad doublet; dd, double doublet; t, triplet; m, multiplet. 13 C NMR spectra were run at 75 MHz on Bruker AMX 300, ARX 400 and AMX 500 instruments. Chemical shifts are in ppm (d scale) and the coupling constants are in Hertz. Carbon substitution degrees were established by DEPT pulse sequence. MS were recorded on a Hewlett Packard 5988A spectrometer using an ionizing voltage of 70 ev. HRMS were obtained on a trisector WG AutoSpecQ spectrometer. For analytical TLC Merck silica gel 60G in 0.25 mm thick layers was used. Chromatographic separations were carried out by conventional column on Merck silica gel 60 ( mesh) and by flash column on Merck silica gel 60 ( mesh) using hexane MeO t Bu (H E) mixtures of increasing polarity. Routinely, dry organic solvents were stored under argon, over freshly activated molecular sieves. Ether, benzene, and THF, were dried over sodium-benzophenone ketyl, HMPA from Na, dichloromethane over calcium hydride, and methanol from magnesium methoxide. Where necessary reactions were carried out under a nitrogen or argon atmosphere Methyl (8R,13S)-8a,13:13,17-diepoxy-14,15-dinorlabdane-19-oate (4). A 0.2% aq OsO 4 solution (47 ml) was added to a solution of 5a b (17 g, 53.5 mmol (17.0 g, 53.6 mmol) in t-buoh (195 ml) and H 2 O (82 ml), and the mixture was stirred for 15 min. Then NaIO 4 (60 g, 283 mmol) was added and the mixture was further stirred at 90 8C for 16 h. After filtration, the solvent was evaporated and the residue was fractionated into t-buome (150 ml) H 2 O (40 ml). The organic phase was successively washed with 10% aq K 2 CO 3 (2!50 ml) and brine (2!50 ml), dried over anhydrous Na 2 SO 4 and evaporated to give a crude (16.26 g). A 2 M solution of Jones reagent (8 ml) was added slowly to a stirred solution of the above crude (16.26 g) in acetone (75 ml) until orange colour permanence, and the mixture was further stirred at room temperature for 3 h. Then it was poured into H 2 O-ice (150 ml) and extracted with Et 2 O(4! 50 ml). The organic phase was successively washed with satd aq Na 2 CO 3 solution (3!50 ml) and brine (2!50 ml), dried over anhydrous Na 2 SO 4 and evaporated to give 4 as a colourless oil (13.8 g, 80%). Compound 4 had identical spectroscopic properties to those reported in the literature Methyl (8R,13S)-8a,13-epoxy-17-hydroxy-14,15- dinorlabdan-19-oate (6a) and methyl (8R,13R)-8a,13- epoxy-17-hydroxy-14,15-dinorlabdan-19-oate (6b).

Then a 1.0 M TiCl 4 solution (1.45 ml, 1.45 mmol) was added and the reaction was stirred for 1 h. A satd NaHCO 3 solution (2 ml) was slowly added and the mixture was stirred for an additional 2 h. The mixture was extracted with ether (3!10 ml) and washed with water (3!10 ml) and brine (3!10 ml). The organic phase was dried over anhydrous Na 2 SO 4, filtered and evaporated to give a crude residue which after chromatography (hexane ether, 3:2) yielded 96 mg (42%) of 6a, 95 mg (41%) of 6b and 30 mg (13%) of starting material. 6a:[a] D ZC (c 5.45, CH 2 Cl 2 ).
