Racemic hongconin 1 has been synthesized from adduct 2 formed by reaction between 1-methoxycyclohexa-1,4-diene and benzoquinone. The synthetic strategy includes Fries and Claisen rearrangements, base and cerium(IV) initiated pyran ring formation, C-4 pyran ring hydroxylation and silver(II) mediated oxidation.
