Stereoselective construction of the furopyranone moiety of the natural product afritoxinone A was demonstrated. This synthetic methodology features (i) stereoselective 1,4-addition of a tricyclic ring system, (ii) oxidative cleavage of the diol, followed by hydration of the resulting dialdehyde group, and (iii) acetalization via cationic cyclization of the pyranediol with the tert-butyl ester tether.
