Asymmetric Total Syntheses of (-)-Renieramycin M and G and (-)-Jorumycin Using Aziridine as a Lynchpin

Using ring opening and Pictet-Spengler reactions of nonracemic amino acid-derived aziridine building blocks as key steps, (-)-renieramycin M I [R = (Z)-MeCH:CMeCO; R = NC; R1 = H], (-)-renieramycin G I [R = (Z)-MeCH:CMeCO; RR1 = O], (-)-jorumycin I (R = MeCO; R1 = HO; R2 = H), and (-)-jorunnamycin A I (R = H; R1 = NC; R2 = H) are prepd. convergently.
