The C15-C27 portion of venturicidin X was prepared using substitution reactions of alkyl trifluoromethanesulfonates with a vinylmetal compound followed by homogeneous hydrogenation. Together with our previous synthesis of the C1-C14 portion of venturicidin X, a formal total synthesis of venturicidin X was completed.
