Biologically important and synthetically challenging spirocyclopentaneoxindoles with four contiguous stereocenters including one spiroquaternary stereocenter have been constructed in good yields (72–87%) with excellent diastereoselectivity (16:1→30:1 dr) and enantioselectivity (93→99% ee) by a combined Ru-catalyzed cross-metathesis/organocatalyzed asymmetric double-Michael addition sequence.
