The ω-formyl-β-methoxycarbonylallyl halide (20), prepared from geraniol and methyl β-hydroxypropionate, was cyclized efficiently and with high stereoselectivity to 14-membered cis-cycloalkenol (21) by CrCl2 in DMF. The cycloalkenol was treated with p-TsOH to give an excellent yield of (±)-cis-cembranolide (IV).
