Synthesis and biological activity of enantiomeric pairs of 5-[(E)-cycloalk-2-enylidenemethyl]thiolactomycin congeners.


The title congeners were synthesized by employing our efficient synthetic route previously explored for preparing enantiomeric pairs of thiolactomycin and its 3-demethyl derivative. While all the synthesized congeners lacked in vitro antibacterial activity, some of the congeners bearing an (E)-cyclohept-2-enylidenemethyl or an (E)-cyclooct-2-enylidenemethyl… (More)
