(Chemical Equation Presented) Rapid elaboration: (+)-Neopeltolide, a novel marine metabolite with potent cytotoxicity against several cancer cell lines, was the target of an efficient total synthesis (see scheme). The construction of the 2,4,6-trisubstituted tetrahydropyran substructure is based on a Suzuki-Miyaura coupling/ring-closing metathesis sequence. BOM = benzyloxymethyl, MPM = 4-methoxyphenylmethyl, TIPS = triisopropylsilyl.
