An efficient and highly diastereoselective intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction is the basis of a concise asymmetric synthesis of the potent antibacterial natural product abyssomicin C (see formula). The complexity of the target structure was reduced to three fragments and required two carbonyl addition reactions to achieve key bond formations. (Figure Presented).
