Total syntheses of maremycin A (4) and maremycin D1 (8) were described, featuring 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of a chiral cyclic nitrone 15 with (E)-3-ethylidene-1-methylindolin-2-one (13). The cycloaddition was reversible, especially at high temperature in the presence of a Lewis acid or in a solvent possessing a high acceptor number. One of the cycloadducts was efficiently led to maremycin A (4) and maremycin D1 (8). High optical purity of 4 was confirmed by chiral HPLC comparison with ent-4 prepared from ent-15 and 13.
