Remote control: Vanadium catalysts provide the key to synthesizing the bacteria-fighting natural product viriditoxin. An achiral catalyst shows modest levels of remote diastereocontrol induced by the lactone stereogenic center and chiral catalysts can be used to enhance or reverse this inherent selectivity.
