Oxidation of furan rings in the presence of hydroxy groups can lead to spirobutenolides. This methodology has been applied in synthetic studies towards three natural products: Pyrenolide 0 - An antileukaemic fungal metabolite. AL-(1) - An antitumor plant natural product. Sawaranospirolides - Four highly oxygenated spiroacetals isolated from the heartwood of the Sawara tree.
