The first asymmetric total synthesis of the putative structure of diplopyrone was achieved in 17 linear steps starting from cis-1,4-butene-diol. The synthetic route features iodine-catalyzed tandem isomerization followed by C–O and C–C bond formation reaction strategy developed by our own group to construct the trans-2,6-disubstituted dihydropyran ring, asymmetric α-aminoxylation reaction, and Still–Gennari (Z)-selective olefination reactions. Careful comparison of 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopic data as well as investigation of the UV and circular dichroism spectrum in trifluoroethanol for compound 2 suggest that the putative structure for diplopyrone {6-[(1S)-1-hydroxyethyl]-2,4a(S),6(R),8a(S)-tetrahydropyran[3,2-b]pyran-2-one} requires revision.
