An efficient strategy for the synthesis of densely functionalized 2,5-trans-disubstituted-tetrahydrofurans (4), from sulfinyldienols is described. Further transformations of this substrate have resulted in a new synthesis of goniofufurone (1) by means of silylated lactone (11), also readily available from D-xylose.
