Abstract

The tri-n-butyltin hydride mediated cyclization of a number of 4-(2′-bromophenoxymethyl)-7-methylthiopyrano[3,2-c]pyran-5-ones have been carried out to afford tetracyclic [6,6]pyranothiopyrans in 70-80% yield and good to excellent diastereoselectivity. The substrate ethers were obtained by a thio-Claisen rearrangement of the corresponding 4-(4′-aryloxybut-2′-ynyl)-6-methyl pyran-2-ones. The cis stereochemistry of the predominant diastereomer has been corroborated by single crystal X-ray analysis.
