A new approach to the total synthesis of the nargenicin macrolide system employing a [2,3] Wittig rearrangement to control the remote C16-C17 stereochemistry required characterization of a pivotal intermediate by X-ray single-crystal methods. The structure is characterized by the formation of strong intermolecular alcohol to dihydrooxazole-N hydrogen bonds, an essentially strain-free tricyclic oxa-bridged octalin nucleus, and low-energy conformations of the methoxymethyl ether side chains.
