12. Synthesis of a Complex Ether

This synthesis might seem like a daunting task at first, but it’s actually fairly simple once you recognize that the key step here is the epoxide opening that will give us the needed skeleton for the molecule.

Reactions that you’ll see in this synthesis are:

  1. Epoxide opening
  2. Alcohol oxidation (Swern oxidation)
