The optically pure trichothecene cis-AB ring moiety (1) was synthesized starting from an optically pure butenolide (7) through the ring closing olefin metathesis for the formation of the A-ring and a Lewis acid mediated cyclization to the cis-fused tetrahedrochromane skeleton that had been converted to natural trichothecene, (+)-calonectrin.
