The four isomers of 6-acetoxy-5-hexadecanolide and muricatacin were synthesized in 6~7 steps through pent- 4-ynoic acid and hex-5-ynoic acid as raw materials and Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation as the key step in overall yields of 33.5%~54.6%. Their structures were confirmed by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, HR-ESI-MS data and X-ray diffraction. The absolute configuration of (-)-epi-muricatacin was also ascertained by X-ray diffraction analysis.

Key words: muricatacin, 6-acetoxy-5-hexadecanolide, sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation, synthesis
