(Chemical Equation Presented) The unprecedented diastereoselective Mannich reaction of a Z-allylsulfoximine was a key step in the total synthesis of the marine natural products azumamide A and E, and an unnatural analogue. Their relative potency as histone deacetylase inhibitors was evaluated and found to correlate with predicted zinc-binding affinity.
