Total Synthesis of (+)-Acutiphycin and (+)-trans-20,21-didehydroacutiphycin Wei Lin Literature Meeting Charette Group Dec. 5 th, 2006
Introduction Isolated from the blue-green algae Oscillatoria acutissima in 1984 by Moore and co-workers. Moore, R.E. et al., J.A.C.S. 1984, 106, Potent in vivo antineoplastic activity against murine Lewis lung carcinoma, significant cyctoxicity against KB and NIH/3T3 cell lines. CYANOPHYTA: Blue- Green Algae
Total Synthesis History In 1995, first total synthesis by Smith Group from Pennsylvania. In 1999, C10-epi seco acid derivative synthesized by Kiyooka group from Japan. In 2001, C(9)- C(13) fragment was synthesized by Miftakhov and co-workers from Russia. In 2002, C(1)- C(8) fragment was synthesized by Léger and co- workers from Merck Frosst center in Quebec In 2006, second total synthesis by Jamison group from MIT.

Explanation of the Unexpected Selectivity in the Aldol Reaction Favored transition state disfavored transition state J.O.C., 1999, 64(15),
Overcome the Problem of Unexpected Selectivity 16 33% + the recovered 16 After cyclization to the macrolactone, epimerization at C10 overcame the problem. 10
Kiyooka Group Work 83% de
Kiyooka Group Work Highly selective synthesis of C10-epi seco acid derivative of (+)- Acutiphycin was accomplished in 17 steps with an overall yield of 8.2%. The six stereogenic centers were achieved form hexanal by using the chiral oxazaborolidinone-promoted asymmetrical aldol reactions. Which was opposite to the original target.
