The total synthesis of haterumalides NA and B, potent cytotoxic marine macrolides, was achieved by using B-alkyl Suzuki-Miyaura coupling and Nozaki-Hiyama-Kishi coupling as key steps. Compared to our first-generation approach for enf-haterumalide NA methyl ester, this second-generation synthesis yielded much more of the key intermediate. This synthesis established the relative stereochemistry of haterumalide B. Furthermore, the structure-cytotoxicity relationships of haterumalides were investigated. The combination of macrolide and side chain parts proved to be important to the cytotoxicity.
