Abstract

Abstract the first enantioselective synthesis of seiridin, a phytotoxic dialkylsubstituted butenolide produced by three Seiridium species, fungi pathogenic for cypress, is described. The short sequence, which leads to optically pure compound 1, would be useful to the obtaining of larger quantities of the compound for genetic selection of resistant cypress plants.
