      An efficient stereoselective total synthesis of (+)-boronolide   from valeraldehyde is described. The key steps include a   Sharpless asymmetric hydroxylation, a chelation-controlled vinyl   Grignard reaction followed by a Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation,   hydrolytic kinetic resolution, and a ring-closing metathesis.
