A reação de ciclização de prins: uma estratégia eficiente para síntese estereosseletiva de anéis tetraidropirânicos substituídos/ The prins cyclization reaction: an efficient stractegy for the stereoselective synthesis of substituted tetrahydropyran rings
Resumo em inglês The Prins cyclization reaction has significantly advanced in the last years as demonstrated by a number of applications described in the literature. The objective of this report is to introduce this powerful synthetic methodology to the undergraduate and graduated student, since it is rarely presented in an organic synthesis formal course. This reaction is, in some cases, the methodology of choice for the preparation of natural products or drugs that present the tetrahydr (mais) opyrane moiety in their structures. In this report we show some aspects of this reaction, including mechanism, scope and limitations.
