A seven-step reaction sequence has been used to convert the enantiomerically pure cis-1,2-dihydrocatechol 10 into the cyclohexenone 17a. A near equivalent sequence involving the same starting material has allowed for the synthesis of the regioisomeric system 17b. Compound 17a is related to the A-ring of ent-viridin (ent-1), the non-natural enantiomer of the furanosteroid viridin (1).
