    A highly convergent synthesis of the C9-C28 spiroacetal subunit of didemnaketal B has been accomplished. Assembly of the C9-C15 alkylborate and C16-C21 enol phosphate by means of Suzuki-Miyaura coupling and acid-catalyzed cyclization of the derived dihydroxy enol ether enabled a rapid and efficient construction of the spiroacetal subunit. The C22-C28 side chain was incorporated via Nozaki-Hiyama-Kishi coupling to complete the synthesis.
