An oxazolidone auxiliary-controlled asymmetric Nazarov reaction has been applied to the synthesis of the cyclopentyl-fused pyrrole core of roseophilins. Additionally, a concise synthetic route to the pyrrole-furan biaryl fragment required in the synthesis of the recently isolated dechlororoseophilin is described. It is anticipated that these two syntheses can be combined in future efforts to provide efficient, convergent access to (+)-dechlororoseophilin.
