    A formal total synthesis of ivorenolide A has been accomplished employing a Z-selective olefin cross metathesis and a macrocyclic Glaser-Hay coupling as key steps. The macrocyclization protocol employed a phase separation/continuous flow manifold whose advantages include catalysis, fast reaction times, high concentrations and facile scale-up.
