A modular strategy leading to the salvileucalin B core structure has been accomplished. The developed synthetic strategy featured a bioinspired intramolecular Diels–Alder reaction to construct domain “A”, REDOX chemistry to functionalize domain “B”, and a palladium-mediated cross-coupling to install domain “C”. This flexible approach should facilitate further chemical and biological investigations of this fascinating class of compounds.
