Biomimetic iterative method for polyketide synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

An iterative method for synthesizing polyketides was demonstrated, in which the chain elongation of a carboxylic acid was performed by decarboxylative dehydration condensation with a malonic acid half thioester. After transforming the resulting β-ketothioester into an appropriate form, the carboxylic acid functionality was regenerated for the next elongation step.
