Stereoselective synthesis of C1-C6 fragment of caribenolide I, a potent antitumour macrolide isolated from a marine dinoflagellate Amphidinium sp. is described. The key step relies on an asymmetric aldol reaction for control the absolute configurations of C2 and C3 stereogenic centers (caribenolide I numbering).
