The total synthesis of polygalolide A was accomplished through intramolecular C-glycosylation of glucal modified with siloxyfuran. The siloxyfuran group and siloxy substituent at the C-3 position played crucial roles in allowing direct access to the highly substituted oxabicyclo[3.2.1] core skeleton with correct quaternary stereogenic centers.
