Synthesis of 2,3,5-trisubstituted furfuryl ether (29), a potential intermediate in a synthetic approach to bipinnatin J, was achieved by a combination of etherification and Stille cross-coupling reaction. Unexpectedly, an intramolecular coupling reaction of 29 proceeded through SN2’ substitution to give 15-membered furfuryl ether (30). Formation of γ-butenolide (34) was also accomplished by a ruthenium-catalyzed carbonylation of allenic alcohol (33).
