Synthesis of the bicyclic core of zaragozic acids employing chiral furylglycerol (6) is described. Key steps are stereoselective construction of the C4 to C6 carbon centers by syn-dihydroxylation of alkene followed by reduction of carbonyl group in pyranone (8), introduction of ethynyl moiety as a carboxylic acid synthon at C3 by nucleophilic addition of lithium trimethylsilylacetylide to aldehyde (19), and bicyclic formation of dihydroxy ketone by ketalization, providing the 2,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane core of zaragozic acids.
