Pd-Catalyzed carbonylative lactonization of (Z)-ω-iodoalkenols can be applied to synthesize α,β-unsaturated lactones containing an alkenyl or alkynyl substituent in the α position, providing a generally superior alternative to recently developed methods involving Pd-catalyzed α-substitution of α-stannyl esters, as exemplified by a highly expeditious synthesis of (+)-hamabiwalactone B.
