(Chemical Equation Presented) The synthesis of (±)-1′-epi- stegobinone has been accomplished in ten steps and 17% overall yield from a recently reported silacyclopropane-derived diol. All stereocenters of the final product were established relative to the stereochemistry of the initial silacyclopropane. This synthesis represents the first time silacyclopropane reactivity has been employed in a target-directed synthesis.
