Copying nature: A biomimetic total synthesis of stephacidin A has been accomplished using an intramolecular Diels–Alder reaction. Stephacidin A was then converted into notoamide B in a single step by oxaziridine-mediated oxidation to provide the first biomimetic total synthesis of notoamide B (see scheme).
