Abstract

A concise synthesis of the isolaurepinnacin skeleton 6 was achieved via the intermolecular allylation of the α-acetoxy ether 3 followed by ring-closing metathesis. This methodology was successfully applied to the convergent synthesis of the oxocene 15, an advanced synthetic intermediate for the total synthesis of laurencin.
