A synthetic study of koumine, a natural product with a densely functionalized and inspiring heterocyclic skeleton, was conducted by exploring a strategy of desymmetrization of 1,3-cyclohexanedione by an intramolecular vinylation reaction of an enolate under palladium catalysis to give a strained bridgehead 1,3-cyclohexanedione scaffold. In the course of the study, a domino ring expansion was discovered and developed.
