The construction of a new type of bicyclo[4.4.0]decene products with a conjugated exocyclic diene unit was developed using Rh-catalyzed cyclization of 1,5-bisallenes in the presence of monoallenes. The steroid-like tetracyclic products could be obtained by applying an alkylation−Diels−Alder process.
