Mandelalide A synthesis

Furstner and co-workers published in ACIE on the synthesis of mandelalide A, a macrolide found in South Africa. I wonder if this compound was named after Nelson Mandela.

    Yes, it was named after Nelson Mandela, actually on the occasion of his 94th Birthday, but this dedication was omitted.
