Abstract

Photooxygenation of the cycloheptatriene derivative 9 gave the bicyclic endoperoxide 14. Cleavage of the peroxide linkage in 14 with thiourea resulted in the formation of 16. Treatment of the endoperoxide 14 with a catalytic amount of triethylamine provided a new isomer of stipitatic acid 11, and 16. Pyrolysis or the CoTPP (TPP = tetraphenylporphyrin) catalyzed reaction of 14 resulted in the formation of iso-stipitatic acid 10, and 18,
