A formal total synthesis of pyrrolo­[1,4]­benzodiazepine anticancer antibiotic family member limazepine E is described. The synthesis features a stereoselective introduction of a trisubstituted double bond using novel sterically demanding Julia–Kocienski reagents, allowing the number of linear steps to be significantly reduced. The potential of the newly developed reagents has also been demonstrated by the formal total synthesis of barmumycin.
