AbstractThe macrolactone natural product (-)-albocycline is a promising antibiotic candidate for the treatment of both methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant strains. Herein we report a concise total synthesis of (-)-albocycline in 14 steps from commercially available methyl (R)-3-hydroxybutyrate. Novel key steps include the highly regio- and stereoselective reactions of chiral N-sulfinyl metallodienamines (NSMDs) with aldehydes and the Davis oxaziridine, in addition to the Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons olefination of N-sulfinyl imines.
