(Chemical Equation Presented) The WXYZA′B′C′ ring system (1) of maitotoxin (MTX) was synthesized in a convergent manner via successive coupling of the W, Z, and C′ ring fragments through construction of the XY and A′B′ ring systems. The synthetic segment 1 blocked the hemolytic activity elicited by MTX.
