The enantioselective total synthesis of (−)-dactylolide is reported. The absolute stereochemistry of the tetrahydropyran was established by catalytic asymmetric Jacobsen hetero-Diels−Alder reaction. The remote C19 stereocenter was introduced by a sequence of chelation-controlled Grignard addition and Ireland−Claisen rearrangement.
