      Abstract:

        A unified synthetic strategy toward caged   Garcinia   natural products has been designed and implemented. Central to   the strategy is a tandem Claisen/Diels-Alder/Claisen   rearrangement of a suitably substituted xanthone precursor to   form forbesione. Serving as a template, forbesione is then used   to deliver representative members of this family, including   desoxygaudichaudione A, desoxymorellin, and gambogin. Studies on   the timing of this reaction cascade suggest that the C-ring   Claisen/Diels-Alder rearrangement proceeds initially and is   followed by the A-ring Claisen reaction. The electronic and   steric effects that govern the outcome of this cascade are   presented.
