The total synthesis of (+)-1893B (2) has been completed. The one-pot ring-opening/cross/ring-closing metathesis of (1S,2S,3S,4R)-2-(t-butyldiphenylsilyloxy)methyl-3-methyl-7-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-ene (4) provided (1R,6S,7S,8S)-7-hydroxymethyl-8-methyl-9-oxabicyclo[4.2.1]nona-2,4-diene (6) after deblocking. The epoxy-ring opening of an advanced intermediate (1R,6S,7S,8S)-7-[(1S,2S)-1-methoxymethoxy-2,3-epoxypropyl]-8-methyl-9-oxabicyclo[4.2.1]nona-2,4-diene (11a) with trimethylsilylacetylide, followed by palladium(II)-catalyzed oxidation for construction of the γ-lactone moiety in 2.
