A new retrosynthetic procedure was developed for the synthesis of the macrocyclic core of a cytotoxic lactone (+)-neopeltolide utilizing cyclopropanol intermediates. The synthesis was suggested and carried out of the C7–C16 segment of (+)-neopeltolide to obtain (4S,6S)-6-[(2S)-2-hydroxypentyl]-4-methyltetrahydro-2H-pyran-2-one. The possibility was demonstrated of a formal synthesis based on the obtained product of the potential antitumor pharmaceutical (+)-neopeltolide.
