MNR8-5 (0.75 g, 1.61 mmol) in toluene (8 mL) was treated with methanesulfonic acid (0.01 mL, 1.61 mmol) and the reaction was stirred at room temperature for 5 hours by which time TLC had shown complete consumption of SM. The reaction was neutralised with sat. sodium hydrogen carbonate solution, the organic fraction extracted and the aqueous fraction was washed with EtOAc (10 mL x 3). The organic layers were combined, dried, filtered and concentrated to give a thick dark orange oil
