A combination of DFT calculations and MD simulations provides a powerful tool for selecting the most favorable precursor in disconnection analysis of macrolactones that are comprised of several hydroxy acid subunits. The results of examination of the approach for the synthesis of prunustatin A (1) and the application to the synthesis of neoantimycin (2) are described.
