Chemistry and Pharmacology
A highly stereoselective and flexible sultone route to actic acids, the monomeric subunits of the macrotetrolides, has been developed and exemplified for nonactic acid (2a). Due to the extensive application of tandem transformations, only six steps were needed to secure methyl nonactate (20) from furan.
