About the cover
Hetero-Diels-Alder reaction is among the most versatile tools in synthetic organic chemist’s toolbox. Due to its potential for rapid generation of structural complexity in a stereospecific fashion, it has been frequently used to synthesize daunting members of the meroterpenoid class of natural products. One of the most recent examples is the total synthesis of (-)-epolone B (center structure). Page 247–267.
