Starting from the glucose-derived δ-lactone and the functionalized aryl bromide, the first total synthesis of naturally occurring paecilomycin B was achieved via functionalized aryl-β-C-glycoside synthesis using 2,4,6-triisopropylphenyllithium under Barbier-type reaction conditions and ring-closing metathesis as the key steps.
