With small differences in the bond between monomers, polymers can function as compact energy storage units in and or as strong, protective fibers in and . Understanding the structure, synthesis, and breakdown of carbohydrate polymers provides a framework for understanding their function in living cells.
How does dehydration synthesis work in Lipids?
In summary, we developed a concise and highly enantioselective synthesis of colchicine (>99% ) in eight steps in 9.3% overall yield without the need for protecting groups. An unusual Wacker oxidation was used for enabling the regioselective construction of the highly oxidized tropolone C-ring. β-Lumicolchicine was prepared through a 4π-electrocyclization reaction with a much-improved yield compared with existing procedures, and the allocolchicinoid NCME was synthesized from β-lumicolchicine through a novel decarbonylation/electrocyclic ring-opening cascade reaction.

Retrosynthetically (), β-lumicolchicine (3) could be prepared from colchicine (1) through a 4π-electrocyclization reaction. We anticipate that NCME (2) would be synthesized from 3 through a Rh-catalyzed decarbonylation process via intermediate A to give the fused bicyclobutene B, followed by an electrocyclic ring-opening reaction. The formation of the more stable aromatic ring C is one of the driving forces for this process. It was envisioned that colchicine (1) could be generated from 6 through a Wacker oxidation, followed by the regioselective formation of the tropolone C-ring. Tricyclic 6 could itself be synthesized from 7 through the intramolecular oxidopyrylium-mediated [5 + 2] cycloaddition reaction. Compound 7 could be synthesized from 5 through several simple functional group transformations reported previously.
