The C19–C30 bis-THF fragment of the proposed structure of iriomoteolide-13a has been synthesized. The w-mesyloxy-substituted stereotetrad possessing three continuous hydroxy groups was generated by anti-aldol reaction and asymmetric dihydroxylation (AD). Upon heating in pyridine the stereotetrad underwent an SN2 cyclization to form the C19–C22 THF ring. It was followed by an intramolecular syn-oxypalladation of the C28 chiral allylic alcohol to give the C23–C26 THF ring.
