  1. Following the Lead from Nature: Divergent Pathways in Natural Product Synthesis and Diversity-Oriented Synthesis
    C. Serba, N. Winssinger
    Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2013, 4195-4214

This microreview discusses recent efforts in chemical synthesis to design divergent pathways either to access diverse natural products from a common intermediate or to produce diverse libraries of compounds reminiscent of natural products. These efforts are generally based on the development and use of powerful complexity-generating reactions and cascade reactions. A panel of eighteen examples is used to illustrate different strategies.
