    W. Liu, N. Winssinger
    Synthesis 2021, 53, 3977-3990

The α-exo-methylene-γ-butyrolactone moiety is present in a vast array of structurally diverse natural products and is often central to their biological activity. In this short review, we summarize new approaches to α-exo-methylene-γ-butyrolactones developed over the past decade as well as their applications in total synthesis.
