Abstract

This microreview surveys the literature over the last five years with regard to construction of functionalised tetrahydropyran (THP) rings in the context of the synthesis of natural products. The overview given is intended to provide a working knowledge of the area for those who are unfamiliar, and to refresh and remind those who do work in the area of the exciting developments in the field. While the construction of the THP rings in a number of natural products has been reviewed, we have attempted to highlight the different strategies by focusing on two natural products, namely phorboxazole and centrolobine as case studies. Over the last five years, these natural products have become a test bed for new methods for the construction of THP rings.
