The first total synthesis and structural elucidation of cryptomoscatone D1, and a novel synthetic approach for cryptomoscatone D2 were achieved in 30% and 29% overall yield, respectively. The synthesis relied on the use of a key Mukaiyama aldol reaction followed by a diastereoselective carbonyl reduction that allowed the preparation of four cryptomoscatone isomers in a stereochemically divergent manner. Comparison of NMR data and CD curves of the synthetic stereoisomers and natural products confirmed the stereochemical nature of cryptomoscatone D2, and led to establishing the absolute configuration of cryptomoscatone D1.
