Flexible total synthesis of biphenomycin B

Author affiliations


A total synthesis of the biaryl antibiotic biphenomycin B is reported which makes use of three independent building blocks (key steps were a clean Suzuki–Miyaura coupling of a free acid iodide, a novel 4-hydroxyornithine synthesis, and a high-yielding macrolactamization); a practical deprotection protocol allowed isolation of the target compound with excellent recovery and purity.
