One-step synthesis of (-)-5-epi-hydanrocidin was achieved by heating a mixture of D-isoascorbic acid and urea without solvent. Studies on N,O-spiroketal formation and epimerization between (+)-hydantocidin and (-)-5-epi-hydantocidin were also carried out to explore some mechanistic aspects of the obtained results.
