We report a new method for constructing the ABC ringsystem of strigolactones, in a single step from a simple linearprecursor by acid-catalyzed double cyclization. The reactionproceeds with a high degree of stereochemical control, whichcan be qualitatively rationalized usingDFT calculations. Ourconcise synthetic approach offers a new model for thinkingabout the (as yet) unknown chemistry that is employed in thebiosynthetic pathways leading to this class of plant hormones.
