In an endeavor to provide an efficient route to natural product hybrids, described herein is an efficient, highly stereoselective, one-pot process comprising an organocatalytic conjugate addition of 1,3-dicarbonyls to ,-unsaturated aldehydes followed by an intramolecular isocyanide-based multicomponent reaction. This approach enables the rapid assembly of complex natural product hybrids including up to four different molecular fragments, such as hydroquinolinone, chromene, piperidine, peptide, lipid, and glycoside moieties. The strategy combines the stereocontrol of organocatalysis with the diversity-generating character of multicomponent reactions, thus leading to structurally unique peptidomimetics integrating heterocyclic, lipidic, and sugar moieties.
