The first stereoselective synthesis of Certonardolsterol D3 was described. Ene reaction and improved allylic oxidation were employed as key steps for efficient construction of the desired 3β,6α,15β-triol steroidal framework. The chiral side chain in Certonardolsterol D3 was finally introduced by Julia olefination.
