The asymmetric total synthesis of (+)-marinomycin A, a 44-membered macrodiolide antitumor agent and antibiotic isolated from a marine actinomycete, Marinispora strain CNQ-140, is reported. The key features of the synthesis include the highly convergent stereocontrolled construction of the monomeric hydroxy salicylate starting from asymmetric epoxidation of the σ-symmetrical dialkenyl carbinol, and an unprecedented direct dimerization through NaHMDS-promoted double transesterification.

Antibiotics play a significant role in human health because of their ability to treat life-threatening bacterial infections. The growing problems with antibiotic resistance have made the development of new antibiotics a World Health Organization priority. Marinomycin A is a member of a new class of bis-salicylate-containing polyene macrodiolides, which have potent antibiotic activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium. Herein, we describe a triply convergent synthesis of this agent using the salicylate as a novel molecular switch for the chemoselective construction of the macrodiolide...

An efficient and highly convergent synthesis of the monomeric counterpart of the antitumor-antibiotic marine natural product marinomycin A was achieved by using optically active titanium complexes to control the configuration of the stereogenic centers, a highly stereo- and regioselective cross-metathesis to generate the (E)-configured C20-C21 double bond, and a Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons olefination followed by a Pd-catalyzed Stille cross-coupling to construct the tetraene moiety.

[structure: see text] The monomeric counterpart of marinomycin A, an antitumor-antibiotic marine natural product, was synthesized efficiently in 11 steps from the commercially available ethyl (R)-(-)-3-hydroxybutyrate. The strategy was highlighted by a crucial regio- and stereoselective cross-metathesis to form the C20-C21 double bond, enantioselective allyltitanations to control the configuration of the C17, C23, and C25 stereogenic centers, and a stereocontrolled construction of the tetraene moiety based on an original Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons olefination followed by a Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling...

Marinomycins A-C (1-3), and their monomeric analogues monomarinomycin A (m-1) and iso-monomarinomycin A (m-2), were synthesized by a convergent strategy from key building blocks ketophosphonate 5, aldehyde 6, and dienyl bromide carboxylic acid 7. The first attempt to construct marinomycin A [1, convertible to marinomycins B (2) and C (3) by light] by direct Suzuki-type dimerization/cyclization of boronic acid dienyl bromide 4 led to premature ring closure to afford, after global desilylation, monomarinomycin A (m-1) and iso-monomarinomycin A (m-2) in good yield and only small amounts (< or =2%) of the desired product...

Four antitumor-antibiotics of a new structure class, the marinomycins A-D (1-4), were isolated from the saline culture of a new group of marine actinomycetes, for which we have proposed the name "Marinispora". The structures of the marinomycins, which are unusual macrodiolides composed of dimeric 2-hydroxy-6-alkenyl-benzoic acid lactones with conjugated tetraene-pentahydroxy polyketide chains, were assigned by combined spectral and chemical methods. In room light, marinomycin A slowly isomerizes to its geometrical isomers marinomycins B and C...
