Employing commercially available 1,5-cyclooctadiene 5 as the starting material, the first total synthesis of the tricyclic sesquiterpene hydrocarbon kelsoene 3 has been accomplished, which also reaffirms its assigned structure. The basic strategy delineated here for the construction of the tricyclo $[^{2,6}]$ decane framework is eminently suitable for the synthesis of other members of this class.
