A simple and efficient synthesis of eight-membered lactone, Cephalosporolide D has been accomplished from inexpensive and commercially available starting materials. This synthesis utilizes α-aminoxylation catalyzed by L-proline reaction, Jacobsen’s hydrolytic kinetic resolution and Yamaguchi macrolactonization as key steps.
