(+)-Zwittermicin A. Rapid Assembly of C9-C15 and a Formal Total Synthesis
ABSTRACT A short, enantioselective synthesis of the C9-C15 portion of (+)-zwittermicin A is reported that exploits directional functionalization of the known hepta-2,5-diyne-1,7-diol by partial reduction of the two triple bonds followed by Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation and boron-directed double ring-opening with sodium azide under Miyashita conditions. Subsequent desymmetrization of the C(2)-symmetric diazidotetraol product converges upon (-)-3--the enantiomer of the key intermediate of our earlier structural proof and synthesis of (-)-zwittermicin A--and constitutes a formal synthesis of (+)-zwitttermicin A.

ABSTRACT: We report the first study of substrate-controlled diastereoselection in a double [3 + 2] dipolar cycloaddition of benzyl azide with α,β-unsaturated imides. Using a strong Brønsted acid (triflic acid) to activate the electron deficient imide π-bond, high diastereoselection was observed provided that a 1,1,3,3-tetraisopropoxydisiloxanylidene group (TIPDS) is used to restrict the conformation of the central 1,3-anti diol. This development provides a basis for a stereocontrolled approach to the aminopolyol core of (-)-zwittermicin A using a bidirectional synthesis strategy.Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry 01/2010; 6:1206-10.

ABSTRACT: Analogs and diastereomers of the natural product zwittermicin A were prepared. SAR studies of these compounds reveal the antifungal activity to be dependent singularly upon the natural constitution and configuration.Bioorganic & medicinal chemistry letters 02/2010; 20(7):2183-5.
