Synthesis of the C1-C8 Tetrahydropyranyl Segment of the Antifungal Agent Ambruticin and its C3 Epimer
The synthesis of the C1-C8 segment (2) of ambruticin and its C3 epimer (9), were accomplished starting from the diethyldithioacetal of L-arabinose in 10 and 8 steps (10% and 16% yield) respectively.
