(+)-Komaroviquinone (1) was synthesized from enone 8 in twelve steps. Three novel routes were developed to produce key intermediate dienone 11. Two additional noteworthy steps are a regiospecific bromohydrin formation to oxidize C(7) and a second regio- and stereospecific bromohydrin formation to introduce the β-C(10) alcohol.
