      An efficient, convergent approach for the total synthesis of   microcarpalide (1) is described. The synthetic   strategy features the Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation,   regioselective epoxide opening with various nucleophiles such as   a lithium acetylide and cuprates derived from the vinyl stannane   and the vinyl iodide for the construction of a C7−C8   trans-double bond and Yamaguchi macrolactonization as   the key steps.
