The first total synthesis of the rearranged aromatic sesquiterpene (±)-laurokamurene B, isolated from the Chinese red alga Laurencia okamurai Yamada, has been accomplished, confirming the structure of the natural product. A combination of Ireland-Claisen rearrangement and ring-closing metathesis was employed as key reactions.
