An enantioselective synthesis of the (1<I>S</I>,5<I>R</I>)-enantiomer of litseaverticillols A and B was accomplished in line with our previously reported synthetic pathway for their (1<I>R</I>,5<I>S</I>)-enantiomer. The use of "EtSCeCl<SUB>2</SUB>" prepared from EtSLi and CeCl<SUB>3</SUB>, instead of previously employed EtSLi itself, for the formation of thiol ester intermediates prevented any undesirable epimerization occurring in the process.
