Abstract(Figure Presented) In a flash: The total synthesis of transtaganolide and basiliolide natural products is achieved in three steps from achiral, monocyclic esters (see scheme). Featured in the syntheses are an Ireland-Claisen/Diels- Alder cascade and a novel methoxyacetylide coupling/cyclization sequence. © 2011 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
