An alternative and improved total synthesis of incednam, the aglycon of the 24-membered macrolactam glycoside antibiotic incednine, was accomplished. The synthesis was realized via construction of the 24-membered macrocycle using intramolecular ring-closing olefin metathesis reaction as a key step.
