Abstract

(+)-Bovidic acid is an 18-carbon hydroxyfuranoid acid isolated from the pelage of the gaur (Bosfrontalis) and displays potential as an insect repellant. Both a formal and total synthesis of (+)-bovidic acid was carried out with the core of the natural product being synthesized through Mukaiyama aerobic oxidative cyclization employing the second-generation Co(nmp)2 catalyst.
