AbstractOur efforts toward the construction of the carbocylic core of cortistatin A via an enyne-ene metathesis are disclosed. Interestingly, an attempted S N2 inversion of a secondary mesylate in our five-membered D-ring piece gave a product with retention of stereochemistry. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
