(Chemical Equation Presented) Look again: Highlights of the 20-step synthesis of callipeltoside C include the proline-catalyzed direct aldol reaction, enantioselective α-oxyamination reaction, and rapid access to the carbohydrate framework using a de novo synthesis protocol. Based on this work the previously assigned absolute configuration of the pendent 2-O-methylevalose unit has been revised.
