(Chemical Equation Presented) Members of a family of α-methoxy-y- pyrone-containing polypropionate natural products have been stereoselectively synthesized. Two key iodovinyl pyrone building blocks were coupled to appropriately selected vinyl stannanes to assemble the highly substituted polyene side chains of the natural products.
