    Abstract:
    (Chemical Equation Presented) A synthetic three-ring circus: The asymmetric total synthesis of (+)-scanlonenyne includes a sequential epimerization and intramolecular hetero-Michael addition for the construction of pyrano-γ-lactones (see scheme; DBU: 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene), a highly efficient one-carbon homologation/bromination strategy, and a Weinreb ketone synthesis/cross-metathesis protocol for the elaboration of a sensitive side chain. © 2008 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
