(Chemical Equation Presented) A second-generation strategy for construction of (+)-nodulisporic acids A and B based on the development of a new, effective modular indole synthesis exploiting a sequential Stille cross-coupling/Buchwald- Hartwig union/cyclization tactic is disclosed. This strategy evolved due to the considerable acid instability of the C(24) hydroxyl group observed in several advanced intermediates during our first-generation approach.
