A Wittig reaction between (+)-3 and the phosphoranylide derived from the bithiazole-type phosphonium iodide [(±)-4] using lithium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide afforded a diastereomeric mixture of the (+)-(4R,5S,6E,14R)- and (4R,5S,6E,14S)-melithiazols G (1), whose NMR spectral data were identical with those of the natural product (1). The antifungal activity of the synthetic diastereomeric mixture of melithiazols G (1) against the phytopathogenic fungus, Phytophthora capsici, was evaluated by using a paper disc assay method.
