Two key intermediates of cembranolides— (2E,6E,10E)‐3,7,11,15‐tetramethyl‐9‐phenylsulfonyl‐2,6,10,14‐tetraen‐1‐hexadecanol (1) and (2E,6E,10E,14E)‐2,6,10,14‐tetramethyl‐8‐phenylsulfonyl‐2,6,10,14‐tetraen‐l,16‐hexadecanediol (2) were synthesized starting from geraniol and linalool and some improved synthetic methods were used.
