A stereoselective route to sterpuren-4-one from a simple aromatic precursor is presented. Oxidative dearomatization, π4s + π2s cycloaddition of 6,6-spiroepoxycyclohexa-2,4-dienones with ethyl acrylate, radical cyclization and 1,3-acyl shift in excited state are the important aspects of our approach. An interesting effect of a remote substituent on radical cyclization has also been presented.
