Chemistry Of The Synthetic Strigolactone Mimic GR24
This research paper describes a second-generation, enantioselective synthesis of (+)-GR24. This new strategy circumvents the need for ozonolysis, which may not be suitable for reactions performed on scale. This flexible new approach is then used to synthesise a novel bromo-GR24 analogue. Finally, the optimal solvent for making GR24 stock solutions is identified.
