Described herein is a novel synthetic approach to diptoindonesin G, a highly potent anticancer oligostilbenoid natural product, from pauciflorol F pentamethyl ether through a skeletal reorganization strategy where oxidative cleavage of the indanone ring system of pauciflorol F and sequential cyclization of the key intermediate allowed direct access to the target skeleton.
