The first total synthesis of the bicyclic depsipeptide natural product seongsanamide B is described. The successful approach employed solid-phase peptide synthesis of a core heptapeptide, incorporating on-resin esterification, followed by solution-phase macrolactamization and a late stage intramolecular Evans-Chan-Lam coupling to generate the biaryl ether of the isodityrosine unit.
