Making use of the Hauser-Kraus annulation as a key step, the first total synthesis of tetarimycin A has been accomplished in a highly convergent and operationally simple manner. Preliminary SAR not only validated that tetarimycin A exhibited potent activity against MRSA and VRE at a low MIC value but also identified that the hydroxyl group at C-10 was essential for antibacterial activities.
