The synthesis of decalin skeletons possessing quaternary carbon centers at C9 using the tandem oxy-Cope/ene/Claisen is described. The degree of substitution at the terminal olefin plays an important role in determining the pathway of the reaction. In the case of 1,2-divinylcyclohexanol having a 1,2-disubstituted allyl ether, the corresponding decalin skeletons were obtained in good yields. In the case of trisubstituted allyl ethers, decalin products resulting from a radical 1,3-shift were isolated. The microwave irradiation of 1,2-divinylcyclohexanol propargyl ethers produced tetracyclic acetal sesquiterpenes via an oxy-Cope/ene/Claisen/5-exo dig cyclization reaction in high diastereoselectivity. The scope and limitation of the method is described.
