The enzyme inhibitor RK-682 (5R)-(+)-1 was prepared in solution and on a solid support from (2R)-glycerates in five steps and ca. 40% overall yield. Key steps were a ring-closing tandem addition−Wittig alkenation reaction of the respective protected or immobilized glycerates with the ylide Ph3PCCO and the 3-acylation of the tetronic acids thus obtained with palmitic acid. A similar route extended by a mesylation−elimination sequence led to antibiotic agglomerins A−C 2 featuring 3-acyl-5-methylidenetetronic acid structures.
