AC1-C7 building block (4) for the enantiomer of hennoxazole A(1), an antivirus and analgesic active marine natural product, was efficiently synthesized from (S)-malic acid utilizing the following key steps: (1) the stereoselective construction of an anti-1,3-diol, (2) the regioselective ring opening of a cyclic acetal, and (3) the oxidative transformation of the olefin into the ketal of the methyl ketone in a one-pot process.
