The first enantioselective total synthesis of (+)-rutamarin (1) is described. The synthetic route features the highlyenantiose lective construction of the stereogenic center via the Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation (99% ee), the facile assemblyof quaternarycarb on-centered 3-substituted side chain and high synthetic efficiency from readily available starting materials. Furthermore, the synthetic strategy could be readilyadopt ed for the synthesis of (+)-rutamarin analogues.
