Abstract

: The condensation of cyclopentadienecarboxylic acid ester with aldehydes produces ester-substituted fulvenes regioselectively. The products undergo both intermolecular and intramolecular [6 + 2] cycloadditions to give the synthetically useful linearly fused tricyclopentanoids. A formal synthesis of Δ9(12)-capnellene is reported.
