Abstract

Synthesis of the dihydroquinoline portion of thiostrepton, the siomycins, and the thiopeptins, members of the thiostrepton family of peptide antibiotics, has been achieved featuring the one-pot olefination via the Matsumura- Boekelheide rearrangement "using trifluoromethanesulfonic anhydride and triethylamine" and the stereoselective addition reaction controlled by the stereocenter of the peri-position.
