      Abstract:

      Two different routes to the tricyclic core of   Garcinia-derived natural products are described. The   first approach is based on a tandem Claisen/Diels-Alder   rearrangement and delivers the desired lactone. The second   approach, employing a Wessely oxidation/Diels-Alder protocol,   leads to the same caged heterocycle, albeit with modified   constitution.
