Abstract

A synthetic approach to a new class of microtubule-stabilizing natural products is described which employs a macrocyclic olefination strategy to cyclize the 16-membered lactone ring. The C13-C19 thiazole subunit of epothilone A and B is prepared in high enantioselectivity using a catalytic asymmetric allylation reaction.
