The first total synthesis of batatin VI, an architecturally novel resin glycoside dimer, has been achieved via a convergent [5 + 3] glycosidic coupling approach. An improved protocol for the construction of the key 18-membered macrolactone core using a Keck macrolactonization method was introduced. However, the synthesized compound was not identical to the natural batatin VI.
