The first total synthesis of janadolide, a new cyclic polyketide-peptide hybrid possessing a tert-butyl group, is described. The synthesis of an unsaturated hydroxycarboxylic acid was effected via the lithiation of vinyl iodide followed by addition to a Weinreb amide with a tert-butyl group and stereoselective 1,2-reduction. The cyclic structure was constructed by macrolactamization at the amide bond between the proline moiety and fatty acid moiety.
