(Chemical Equation Presented) The first, enantiocontrolled total synthesis of (+)-sundiversifolide has been accomplished using the sequential ring-closing metathesis, [3,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement, and iodolactonization for the key assembly of the cis-fused oxabicyclo[5.3.0]decene framework of the natural product.
