Abstract

The tetracarbocyclic framework of the nicandrenone natural products is formed in one step from a linear precursor via a domino intramolecular Diels-Alder/intramolecular furan Diels-Alder/aromatization sequence. The approach represents a new 0 → ABCD strategy for the preparation of aromatic steroids.
