Reaction information

*#Reaction file
*Reaction file type CDX

To a stirred solution of tert-butyl 2-(3-((3aR,6aS)-2-hexyl-6a-(1-phenylvinyl)-3,3a,4,5,6,6a-hexahydropentalen-1-yl)propoxy)acetate (43 mg, 0.09 mmol) in DCM (0.8 mL) was added TFA (0.2 mL) dropwise.  The reaction was stirred for 1 hour.  TLC showed some of the SM still remained so extra TFA (0.2 mL) was added and the reaction was stirred for 30 min.  TLC showed no SM remained.

The reaction mixture was concentrated under reduced pressure and redissolved in chloroform before being concentrated again (a process that was repeated 3 times).  Due to the presence of the impurity from the starting material, the product was purified by column chromatography (silica gel, 5 % methanol in DCM, then 50 % methanol in DCM) to give the pure product (37 mg, 0.09 mmol, 98 %). 

*Yield (%) 98
*Type of Yield Isolated Product Yield
