The synthesis of the naturally occurring toxin pyocyanin has been realized in a short 4 step sequence. The key photochemical reaction and isolation of the final product has been facilitated by the use of flow chemistry techniques and immobilised reagents. Using these procedures gram quantities of pyocyanin were easily prepared in high yield and purity.
