The stereoselective synthesis of the monocyclic peloruside A analogue 4 has been achieved, following a new efficient approach for the introduction of the side chain, involving a late-stage addition of vinyl lithium species 7a to aldehyde 8. Further key steps are a highly diastereoselective allyltitanation reaction and a RCM-based macrocyclization.
