Stereoselective and streamlined synthesis of the proposed C79-C104 fragment 2 of symbiodinolide (1), a polyol marine natural product with a molecular weight of 2860, was achieved. In the synthetic route, the proposed C79-C104 fragment 2 was synthesized by utilizing a Julia-Kocienski olefination and subsequent Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation as key transformations in a convergent manner. Detailed comparison of the 13C NMR chemical shifts between the natural product and the synthetic C79-C104 fragment 2 revealed that the stereostructure at the C91-C99 carbon chain moiety of symbiodinolide (1) should be reinvestigated.
