Abstract: A concise and highly enantioselective route has been developed for the synthesis of angucyclinone-type natural products. Utilizing this strategy, total syntheses of five natural products YM-181741, (+)-ochromycinone, (+)-rubiginone B-2, (-)-tetrangomycin, and MM-47755 have been accomplished in 22%, 23%, 19%, 18%, and 12% overall yields, respectively. Our approach for the synthesis of these natural products having the benz[a]anthraquinone skeleton is based on a sequential intramolecular enyne metathesis, intermolecular Diels-Alder reaction (DAR), and aromatization. The intramolecular enyne metathesis reaction was employed for the synthesis of enantiopure 1,3-dienes in excellent yields. Furthermore, the synthesis of YM-181741 as well as structurally similar angucyclinones such as (+)-ochromycinone and (+)-rubiginone B-2 was achieved via asymmetric enolate alkylation of an oxazolidinone in excellent de. The related angucyclinones (-)-tetrangomycin and MM-47755, bearing a labile tertiary alcohol, were synthesized via Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation of a known allylic alcohol followed by opening the epoxide with Red-Al. The introduction of oxygen functionality at C-1 in all these natural products was accomplished by photooxygenation under a positive pressure of oxygen.
