A novel, stereodivergent route to paraconic acids from C 2-symmetric trans- and cis-alk-2-ene-1,4-diols through Ireland-Claisen and/or Johnson orthoester rearrangements is disclosed. This strategy has been applied to the synthesis of (-)-methylenolactocin and (-)-phaseolinic acid from a single chiral diol.
