A convergent total synthesis of (−)-dactylolide is described. Constructing the 2,6-disubstituted exo-methylene THP moiety was achieved by the intramolecular allylation of α-acetoxy ether. The cyclization precursor was prepared from two segments, an alcohol and carboxylic acid derivatives, by esterification followed by reductive acetylation.
