Brevetoxin B

Brevetoxin B

A marine neurotoxin

First reported by Nakanishi in 1981

23 stereocenters

All trans-contiguous ether rings

Lin, Y.; Nakanishi, K. J. Am. Chem. Soc. 1981, 103, 6773.

Work with Model

Nicolaou, K. C.; Hwang, C. -K. J. Am. Chem. Soc.1990, 112,3040.


Slide11 l.jpg

But…

Nightmare!!!


Slide12 l.jpg

Is the Strategy Useless?

Unfortunately, however, all attempts to achieve the bis(thionation) of the macrodilactone precursor failed… The lactone carbonyl flanked by the methyl group, defiantly resists the action of Lawesson’s reagent, presumably due to its hindered nature…

------ K. C. Nicolaou

Significance:

1. Investigation of the chemistry of the molecule

Brevetoxin B and the basis of the following total

synthesis;

2. Developing a full body of methodology to build

fused seven-membered rings;

Slide24 l.jpg

Ley’s Idea

We recognise this coupling involves the formation of a difficult bond, but therein lies the challenge.

---- S. V. Ley

Ley, S. V. Pure Appl. Chem.1994, 66, 2099.


Slide25 l.jpg

1stSynthesis

Ⅰ. Develop a flexible approach

for the total synthesis

Ⅱ. Study the functional groups

responsible for activity

(potential active center)

Ways to Go

Dead Ends

Detour

Connect the two parts through other functional groups and then close the desired bondintramolecularly!

Introduce this bond in an earlier step of the synthesis!
