A new methodology for the synthesis of the complex ring system tricyclo[]undecane. present in the zizaene group of sesquiterpenes, is described. Acid-catalysed rearrangement of the endo alcohol 20 afforded the enone 12, which was transformed stereoselectively into the key intermediate. (+/-)-norprezizanone 10. The features of the synthesis are the transformation of a bicycle[2.2.2] octane framework into a bicycle[3.2.1] octane system by an acid-catalysed rearrangement and a stereoselective conjugate addition of a methyl group on an alpha,beta-unsaturated keto ester at -100 degrees C. Norprezizanone was converted into the sesquiterpenes (+/-)-prezizanol 5 and(+/-)-prezizaene 4. The first total synthesis of (+/-)-jinkohol II 6 is also presented.
