Four types of lactones 1-4 which might be biosynthetic intermediates of brefeldin A have been synthesized. In the course of their synthesis, it was found that coupling of a hydroxy phosphonium salt and a carbomethoxy-aldehyde gave a macrocyclic lactone in onepot probably by a sequential reaction in which intramolecular Wittig condensation followed transesterification.
