    An enantioselective synthesis of the (1S,5R)-enantiomer of litseaverticillols A and B was accomplished in line with our previously reported synthetic pathway for their (1R,5S)-enantiomer. The use of "EtSCeCl 2" prepared from EtSLi and CeCl3, instead of previously employed EtSLi itself, for the formation of thiol ester intermediates prevented any undesirable epimerization occurring in the process.
