The synthesis of the C1−C13 fragment of (+)-discodermolide has been achieved. The configurations of the stereogenic centers have been controlled by enantioselective allyl- and crotyltitanations of aldehydes, and the <i>Z</i> configuration of the olefin at C8−C9 was controlled by a ring-closing metathesis.
