Solid-phase total synthesis of cyclodepsipeptide spiruchostatin A (1) has been achieved. Initially, immobilization of the Boc-d-Val-statine derivative 3 via the hindered β-hydroxy group was efficiently achieved using polymer-supported silyl triflate. Subsequently, the peptide chain was successfully extended on the polymer-support to yield the tetrapeptide cyclization precursor 2 with high purity. 2-Methyl-6-nitrobenzoic anhydride (MNBA)-mediated macrolactonization of 2 proceeded smoothly on the polymer-support to provide macrolactone 12. Finally, release of the macrolactone from the polymer-support followed by in situ disulfide formation furnished spiruchostatin A (1) in 17% overall yield.
