A convergent strategy for the synthesis of leustroducsins and phoslactomycins has been designed, relying on the synthesis and the coupling of three main fragments.  The central fragment was synthesized via a regio-and stereoselective nitroso Diels-Alder with an enol phosphate, followed by reductive cleavage of the phosphate to the ketone 11b.  Coupling studies of this fragment with the lactone fragment was accomplished in a stereoselective fashion through a vinyl lithium intermediate.  An advanced synthetic intermediate was then obtained after functional group transformation.
