Abstract

The total synthesis of gravicycle, isolated from Grevillea robusta, has been achieved for the first time. The key step of our synthetic process is the efficient assembly of a highly functionalized biaryl ether via the copper-catalyzed O-arylation of suitably protected pyrogallol-5-carboxylate, using triarylbismuth( V) diacetate.
