A phosphotriester approach is used to access the complex phospholipid, cardiolipin (1) with polyunsaturated fatty acid chains. The synthetic method allows the specific incorporation of isotopic labels within the molecule and sets up the desired configuration at all three chiral centres which corresponds to the configuration of the natural phospholipid. Using such a methodology a range of pure optically active cardiolipin molecular species have been synthesized.
