A general, efficient, and common strategy for the synthesis of (-)-juglomycin A, (+)-kalafungin, (+)-frenolicin B, and (+)-deoxyfrenolicin is reported here. The strategy involves the synthesis of a key building block alkyne from a cheap chiral pool material, D-glucono-δ-lactone, Dötz benzannulation, oxa-Pictet-Spengler reaction, and H(2)SO(4)-mediated epimerization.
