The title macrosphelides were synthesized by using two-step conversion of furans into γ-oxo-α,β- unsaturated carboxylic acids as a key step. In the case of macrosphelide H, AcCH2 group at C(3) was constructed from CH2=CHCH2 by Wacker oxidation under modified conditions.

Keywords: macrosphelide, asymmetric synthesis, wacker oxidation, furan, furan oxidation
