Divergent Approach to Building a Latrunculin Family Derived Hybrid Macrocyclic Toolbox

A divergent approach to obtain a latrunculin family based hybrid macrocyclic toolbox is developed. A practical, stereoselective synthesis of a common substructure present in latrunculin A and latrunculol A was achieved. This was further utilized in the macrocyclic diversity synthesis. The amino acid moiety embedded in the 15-membered macrocyclic ring allows for the exploration of various chiral side chains as one of the diversity sites.
