Complex: The synthesis of the glycolipid PGL-tb1 present in the outer membrane of hypervirulent strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis has been accomplished for the first time by using a highly convergent strategy featuring a Sonogashira coupling to unite a phenolic trisaccharide with the phthiocerol. Efficient asymmetric Cu-catalyzed 1,4-additions to unsaturated thioesters and cyclic enones have been employed to introduce the methyl groups.
