By judicious choice of a conformationally constraining unit to predispose cyclisation to a 15-membered ring, we present a straightforward strategy to a cembranolide precursor of bielschowskysin by the Sonogashira coupling of two readily prepared fragments (from D-glucose and L-malic acid) followed by a facile beta-acylketene macrolactonisation reaction.
