Rengyol and seven related cyclohexylethanoid natural products have been synthesized in a stereocontrolled manner from a common starting material. In the present study the absolute configuration of the three chiral products has been determined and the first synthesis of a cyclohexylethanoid natural product bearing an oxetane ring has been accomplished.
