The aliphatic portion of (±)-zearalenone has been synthesised by a new simple route starting from 2,3-dihydropyran and 2-acetyl-γ-butyrolactone by employing dithiane for C-C bond formation. The final condensation of this segment with the aromatic part and subseqnet transformations led to (±)-zearalenone.
