- A five-step synthesis of the natural product angelicoin A using a late stage highly regioselective palladium(0)-catalyzed decarboxylative prenyl migration and aromatization sequence as the key step is reported. The method was extended with geranyl migration in eight-step total syntheses of hericenone J and hericenol A from geraniol.
