The corrections read much the same as the last raft, released two months prior in Org. Lett., alleging spectral manipulation for multiple intermediates and final molecules, including removal of solvent peaks. Here's one example showing 13C spectra* for intermediate 7, from the synthesis of lyconadin A:
|Original spectrum (2011)*|
|Corrected Spectrum (2014)*|
So, what's going on here? I have a theory, although it's a bit of hearsay since I'm not privy to the inner workings of either journal. However, the astute reader will note one author whose name appears on nine of the ten corrected papers from Feb-April...uh-oh.
Was there a bad apple in the Fukuyama lab? More details as I have them.
