Contemporary Synthetic Strategies towards Secosteroids, abeo-Steroids, and Related Triterpenes
F. Noack, R.C. Heinze, P. Heretsch – 2019
Steroids have long been sought after as synthetic targets. Their rearranged counterparts, though, have only recently received more attention, when isolation and biological testing programs revealed several molecular entities that were both structurally intriguing as well as biologically relevant. This review will highlight contemporary synthetic approaches towards the growing class of seco- and abeo-steroids and some related triterpenoid natural products.
