A stereoselective total synthesis of the tricyclic sesquiterpene (−)-seychellene, starting from (R)-carvone via (R)-3-methylcarvone has been accomplished, employing a combination of intermolecular Michael addition-intramolecular Michael addition sequence, a stereoselective hydrogenation, and an intramolecular alkylation reaction.
