Abstract:Synthesis of lactones 3 and 4 is reported in an attempt towards the synthesis of natural product feigrisolide B. Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation and Gillman epoxide opening reactions were used for the construction of the required framework containing two stereocentres. The lactones 3 and 4 revealed that the proposed structure for feigrisolide B is incorrect.
