Synthesis of the fungus metabolite cladosin C

Author affiliations


Cladosin C is one of the few known enaminotetramic acids, isolated from extracts of the deep sea fungus Cladosporium sphaerospermum. It was synthesised in ten steps and 14% overall yield by a late-stage amination of the corresponding 3-acyltetramic acid. This was obtained by a Dieckmann condensation of an N-β-ketoacylaminoester derived from dehydrovalinate and the thioester-terminated side chain containing the stereogenic centre which stemmed from poly-(R)-3-hydroxybutyrate.
