Z-4-germacranolides (heliangolides) were synthesized from α-santonin. The regio- and stereoselective introduction of Z-4-double bond info the cyclodecane ring required for the synthesis of naturally occurring heliangolide is performed in excellent yield via 5S-iodo derivatives of Z-9-germacranolides.
