Abstract

Deoxypropionates constitute an important class of polyketide natural products. The biological properties of deoxypropionates are diverse and synthetic strategies toward their preparation are equally manifold. This short review presents some recent developments on the synthesis of deoxypropionate units involving, besides iterative and non-iterative routes, other methods such as stereoselective Mukaiyama reactions or lithiation–borylation–protodeboronation sequences.

3.6 Homologation of Boronates with Organolithiums

4 Non-Iterative Methods
