Synthesis of an Acyclic Precursor to Epothilone D Analog. Aldol Condensation of (1R)-1-(1,3-Dithiolan-2-yl)-1-(methoxymethoxy)- 2,2-dimethylpentan-3-one with C6‒C21 and C6‒C9 Aldehyde Segments

The synthesis of acyclic precursors to epothilone D analogs has been explored. Optimal conditions have been found for enolization of (1R)-1-(1,3-dithiolan-2-yl)-1-(methoxymethoxy)-2,2-dimethylpentan-3-one and its aldol condensation with C6‒C21 and C6‒C9 aldehydes.
