A concise stereoselective total synthesis of (-) - Cephalosporolide D, an eight membered
lactone ring has been derived from low cost and easily available starting material (±)-propylene
epoxide. The key steps involved in this concise synthesis are Sharpless kinetic resolution, Grignard
reaction and Yamaguchi macrolactonisation.
Keywords: (±)-propylene epoxide, sharpless kinetic resolution, yamaguchi macrolactonisation, stereoselective synthesis and (-)
