Short cuts toward forskolin synthesis: A pentacyclic approach

Abstract : A practical synthetic route for the preparation of forskolin intermediate 20 is described. Previously reported lactone 3 was converted to 20 through intermediate 16. The main feature of this work lies in the formation and the cleavage of a tetracyclic intermediate for the stereochemical control in the formation of the tricyclic core of forskolin.
