The first stereoselective synthesis of epimeloscine has been accomplished in 13 total steps with a longest linear sequence of 10 steps. The core of the synthesis takes only five steps, the key ones being acylation, stereoselective tandem radical cyclization of a divinylcyclopropane to make two rings, and group-selective ring-closing metathesis of the resulting divinylcyclopentane to make the last ring. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
