Total synthesis of (3R,16Z,20E,23S)- and (3R,16Z,20E,23R)-eushearilide was accomplished in 15 steps, respectively. Using either enantiomer of one of the four building blocks to assemble the phosphonium salt for the latter Wittig reaction, two diastereomers of eushearilide were prepared. Shiina macrolactonization (2-methyl-6-nitrobenzoic anhydride) was a key step in production of the 24-membered lactone in high yield.
