As a part of our ongoing research projects on the synthesis of natural salicylic macrolides, the optically active protected salicylate bearing the chiral diene substituent was required as a pivotal synthetic intermediate. The synthesis of the compound was achieved with a high optical purity starting from D-mannitol through Heck coupling reaction and terminal methylenation as key C–C bond forming reactions.
