Enantiospecific synthesis of (-)-muricatacin, a bio-active lactone comprising of a 5-hydroxyalkylbutan-4-olide structural component has been achieved from L-(+)-tartaric acid. The key step involves a disteroselective reduction of a $C_2$-symmetric 1,4-diketone derived from tartaric acid followed by a selective Grignard reagent addition.
