The preparation of the C1–C11 subunit of phoslactomycins, and a formal synthesis of phoslactomycin B, were achieved by a convergent strategy involving the chelation-controlled addition of an alkynyl Grignard reagent to a α-alkoxyketone. Catalytic enantioselective reductions of acetylenic ketones and a [2,3]-Wittig rearrangement were utilized as key steps to control the configuration of the C4, C5 and C9 stereocenters.
