Snider's synthesis of (+)-TAN125lC The synthesis starts from the N-Boc-tyrosine methyl ester, which was Obenzylated, since the prenyl ether required in the target compound is not compatible with the conditions required for the preparation of the hydoxylamine or the hydrogenation of the isoxazolidine intermediate (Scheme 40).

Preparation of ketoaldehyde 6 and its aldol reaction UBH4 followed by an acid hydrolysis gave a deprotected keto alcohol, in which the secondary amine was again protected with BOC2O. Finally, the aldehyde intermediate 6 was obtained using the Dess Martin reagent. The aldol reaction of 6 proceeded analogously to that of the model ketoaldehyde 12, although in lower yield.
