In the first portion of this work, an intramolecular Diels–Alder/Tsuji allylation
assembly of functionalized trans-decalin systems will be discussed (Chapter I). This is
presented in the context of synthetic studies toward the psychoactive (κ-opioid agonist)
natural product salvinorin A. Synthetic studies of the sea lamprey (Petromyzon
marinus) migratory pheromone will be discussed in Chapter II. In the third chapter, a
structure activity relationship study of the sea lamprey migratory pheromone will be
presented in which results suggest that the sea lamprey olfactory system is not uniquely
and specifically recognizing the allo (i.e., 5α-H) configuration in bile acid derivatives.
