Biomimetic total synthesis of (±)-berkeleyamide D

Author affiliations


We describe the total synthesis of (±)-berkeleyamide D using a biosynthetically inspired strategy. The spirocyclic core of berkeleyamide D was constructed via sequential epoxidations and a late-stage base-mediated cyclization of a biosynthetically relevant precursor. Our synthetic solution might be applicable to access other fungal natural products of this family.
