Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A highly convergent synthesis of archazolid B, a potent and highly selective V-ATPase inhibitor, is described. A relay ring-closing metathesis reaction was used to form the 24-membered macrocyclic lactone, whereas the sensitive cis-triene moiety of the archazolids was assembled with a modified Stille coupling.
