The (polyenoyl)tetramic acid militarinone C (1) heads a family of seven members. Before our work, the configuration of C-5 was unknown whereas the configurations of C-8′ and C-10′ were either (R,R) or (S,S). We synthesized the four stereoisomers of constitution 1, which conform with these insights. This included cross-coupling both enantiomers of the western building block (8) with both enantiomers of the eastern building block (9). The specific rotations of the resulting 1 isomers suggested that natural 1 is configured like the coupling partners (S)-8 and (R,R)-9. This conclusion was corroborated by degrading natural 1 to alcohol 35 and by proving its configurational identity with synthetic (R,R)-35.
