Aflatoxin analogue 19 was prepared by a direct sequence involving a novel silver-mediated cyclization to 12, the Michael addition of 16 with 17, and the oxidation of the Michael addition adduct. The overall yield of this six-step route is approximately 11%. The pathway is a flexible one that will permit the synthesis of analogues for toxicological analysis.
