A stereoselective synthesis of methyl (-)-nonactate is described. (E)-γ-Triethylsilyloxyalkene 13 generated from sulfone 10 and (S)-2-benzyloxypropanal underwent intramolecular iodoetherification in the presence of silver carbonate to provide cis-2,5-disubstituted tetrahydrofuran 8 as a key intermediate.
