Latest piece for the RSC in the June issue of Chemistry World, making a rather popular molecule [1, 2].
Some good stereocenters in that. I also enjoyed the rearrangements, the Fries was pretty.
I would reference the great synthesis by Chulbom Lee. They finished kendomycin prior to Rychnovsky.
It should also be noted that the Chulbom Lee synthesis was the first total synthesis of this molecule yet you don’t talk about that here or in any previous posts.
