An acylketene mediated cyclization protocol delivers a series of cyclic oligolides, the largest characterized cyclic oligolide having a 77-membered ring. 6-(ω-Hydroxyalkyl)dioxinone analogs were prepared and cyclizations were conducted under a variety of conditions in refluxing toluene. 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and several different mass spectrometric techniques were employed to verify the cyclic nature of these oligolides.
