A new synthesis of γ-rubromycin is presented through a new oxidative, bisbenzannulated spiroketalization as a key step which is catalyzed by an in situ generated hypoiodite species, developed previously by our group. This key transformation has high efficiency and convenient conditions. This is a new and efficient catalytic application for organohypoiodine reagents.
