Abstract

Studies have been conducted on testing strategies for annulation of the two macrocyclic rings onto the central tricyclic nucleus of sarain A (1). In particular, methodology has been developed for introduction into the core of C-3' and C-3 substituents, which are necessary for construction of the 'eastern' and 'western' macrocyclic rings of 1, respectively. Formation of the western ring has been successfully addressed via a ring-closing olefin metathesis strategy utilizing the Grubbs ruthenium catalyst. With this macrocyclization approach, a key intermediate lactam has been prepared which will be utilized in a total synthesis of the natural product.
