Facile oxidation of highly substituted 3,5-hexadien-1-ols using 3-iodoxybenzoic acid (IBX) in DMSO has resulted in a one-pot preparation of 2,3,4,6-tetrasubstituted 2H-pyrans. Cycloisomerizations of the 1-oxatriene moiety, produced in the oxidation, spontaneously occur via a disrotatory oxa-electrocyclization. The 2H-pyran products of Table 1 features three differentiated carbonyl substituents.
