A series of 3-aryl-5-acyloxymethyl-5,6-dihydro-2H-pyran-2-ones, related to highly antifungally active butenolides, was synthesized via cyclization of substituted δ-hydroxy acids as the key step, and evaluated for their in vitro antifungal activity and cytostatic activity. While the extension of the furanone ring to pyranone led to a complete loss of the antifungal effect, some of the compounds displayed promising effect against several cell lines, including the resistant colorectal carcinoma cells. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
