An efficient, formal enantioselective synthesis of (+)- and (-)-pauciflorol F has been achieved using a recently introduced oxazolidinone controlled torquoselective Nazarov reaction. The absolute stereochemistry of pauciflorol F and its biosynthetic precursors has been unambiguously confirmed using X-ray crystallography.
