First total synthesis of dioxepine bastadin 3

Author affiliations


The synthesis of dioxepine bastadin 3, a tyrosinetyramine derivative with a dibenzo-1,3-dioxepine scaffold that is rarely present among natural products, is described. The dibenzo-1,3-dioxepine ring was formed early in the sequence and the (E)-2-(hydroxyimino)-N-alkylamide was generated in the last step by oxidation of the 2-amino-N-alkylamide precursor. The presumably biogenetic late-stage ring formation starting from congener bastadin 3 failed. A new synthesis of this alkaloid was also developed. This new route requires a minimal use of protecting groups and the order of the two key steps was reversed relative to the route to dioxepine bastadin 3.
