Acyclic conjugated ynenediones tethered to an alcohol or carboxylic acid are converted into furanyl-substituted cyclic ethers or lactones in a single step by treatment with the tetrahydrothiophene. Modest levels of diastereocontrol can be achieved in some cases where the presence of a substituent on the tether results in the creation of a second stereogenic centre upon formation of the cyclic ether or lactone.
