Abstract A highly stereoselective asymmetric total synthesis of marine polypropionate (−)-baconipyrone C has been achieved. Utilization of desymmetrization technique to create five stereogenic centres, Sharpless epoxidation, Gilman's reaction and resolution of methyl group using enzyme PS-C is the highlight of the synthesis.
