The enantioselective total synthesis of (-)-stemoamide using Overman/Claisen rearrangement of an allylic 1,2-diol is reported. The enantiopure allylic 1,2-diol was efficiently prepared from naturally occurring dimethyl tartrate. The chirality transfer reactions through two consecutive [3,3]-sigmatropic rearrangements proceeded with complete diastereoselectivity in a one-pot process.
