Total synthesis of (+/-)-deoxypenostatin A. Approaches to the syntheses of penostatins A and B.

A short synthesis of (+/-)-deoxypenostatin A (28) has been carried out using the convergent coupling of dienal 11, epoxide 13, and methylenetriphenylphosphorane (17) to prepare trienol 19 in only two steps. The key step is the Yb(OTf)(3)-catalyzed intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction of hydrated trienyl glyoxylate 23, which gives lactone 24 stereoselectively. Elaboration of lactone 24 to enone 27 by an intramolecular Horner-Emmons Wittig reaction and epimerization completes the synthesis of 28. Modest yields of Diels-Alder adducts 45a and 46a could be prepared analogously from MEM ether 44c, but the sensitivity of several of the intermediates precluded the elaboration of 45a to penostatin A (1).[1]
