Synthetic studies on the mycolactone core

Author affiliations


Two approaches are presented for the synthesis of the macrolide core of the mycolactone polyketides. The first intertwines ring closing metathesis (RCM) within a two-step Julia olefination protocol, while the second intercepts the optimized routes of Kishi, thereby providing formal access to the mycolactones.
