Here, we have established a new and simple synthetic approach to the pentacycloundecane containing cage oxazole unit in four steps. The synthesis begun with a cheap and readily available materials such as 2,5-dimethoxybenzaldehyde and endo-dicyclopentadiene. This approach relies on Van Leusen oxazole synthesis and [2+2] photocycloaddition as key steps. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first example of Cookson’s dione containing oxazole ring system. Some of these oxazole motifs are useful in bioorganic chemistry and our results are likely to draw the attention of medicinal chemists
