Biselyngbyolide A is an 18-membered macrolide that exhibits significant biological activities such as growth-inhibitory activity and apoptosis inducing activity against cancer cells. In this study, the first total synthesis of biselyngbyolide A by using an intramolecular Stille coupling reaction as a key step is achieved.
