Highly functionalized bicyclo[2.2.2]octene derivatives bearing two quaternary carbon centers were synthesized in an asymmetric fashion. The key transformations were the regioselective Diels-Alder reaction between 3,6-dimethyl-o-quinone monoacetal and 1,1-diethoxyethylene and the subsequent enzymatic resolution. The optically active bicyclo[2.2.2]octene derivatives obtained should serve as versatile chiral building blocks for highly functionalized natural products such as ryanodine.
