Abstract

A formal synthesis of (-)-apicularen A, a potent antitumor agent with unique biological properties, has been completed in a 15-step sequence starting from a known, enantiomerically pure hydroxyepoxide, which was generated by using the Jacobsen hydrolytic-kinetic-resolution methodology. The 12-membered macrocyclic lactone in the target was constructed by ring-closing metathesis, and the frans-tetrahydropyran ring system was created through the transannular etherification of a hydroxyalkene.
