The total syntheses of natural products Prelactone-V and Prelactone-B have been accomplished by a novel Chiron approach starting from d-glucose. The synthesis involves isopropylidene acetal formation of d-glucose using Poly(4-vinylpyridine) supported iodine as a catalyst, Tebbe olefination, Grignard reaction, Wittig olefination, selective mono deprotection of acetal using PMA/SiO2, hydrogenation and anti-1,3-diol formation are as key steps.
