Abstract

The first total synthesis and structural determination of benzopyrenomycin has been achieved. This synthesis contains remarkable transformations including cyclization to afford the benzanthrone skeleton, syn-selective vinylogous Mukaiyama aldol reaction, and radical cyclization with the benzanthrone attaching the iodoalkane chain.
