The first total synthesis of (+)-dragmacidin F has been accomplished, establishing the absolute configuration of this biologically important, antiviral marine alkaloid. The convergent route described features a palladium-mediated oxidative pyrrole carbocylization reaction to construct the [3.3.1] bicycle, as well as a highly selective Suzuki coupling to build the carbon skeleton of the natural product. A late-stage Neber rearrangement allows for the facile installation of the aminoimidazole moiety to provide (+)-dragmacidin F.
