The total synthesis of tunicamycin V is described. This strategy is based on the initial construction of tunicaminyluracil, which is regarded to play an important role in the observed biological activities. The key to the synthesis was a Mukaiyama aldol reaction followed by a furan-oxidation to construct the undecose skeleton, a [3,3] sigmatropic rearrangement of a cyanate, and a highly selective trehalose-type glycosylation.
