Abstract

A convergent synthetic route to the FGHI ring system of yessotoxin, a marine ladder polyether, has been developed. The synthesis features convergent coupling of the diol and the aldehyde to form α-cyano ethers via acetal formation followed by ring closing metathesis and reductive etherification to construct the oxocane ring G and tetrahydropyran ring H, respectively. The β-methyl group on the G ring was stereoselectively introduced by alkylation of the corresponding ketone.
