A palladium-catalyzed tandem Stille-oxa-electrocyclization reaction has been developed for the convergent preparation of highly substituted polycyclic pyran systems. The strategy presented in this letter is an alternative to the known methods for constructing similar pyran systems. The substrate scope of this diastereoselective transformation is explored.
