Abstract

The MIDA touch: A concise and highly convergent protecting-group-free total synthesis of (−)-myxalamide A involves a stereoselective vinylogous Mukaiyama aldol reaction of a vinylketene silyl N,O-acetal, together with a one-pot Stille/Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reaction using Burke's N-methyliminodiacetic acid (MIDA) boronate to connect left- and right-hand fragments of the molecule (see scheme).
