Abstract

Acid catalyzed rearrangement of endo 1-methoxytricyclo $[6.2.2.0^{3,8}]$dodec-2-en-1O-ol 8c afforded the ketone 9 which has been transformed into (\pm)-norprezizanone 19 thus completing a formal synthesis of (\pm)-zizaene. A key step in this strategy is a stereospecific 1,4-addition of a methyl group.
