We herein report the first total synthesis of the dibenzocycloheptanoide (±)-dihydroisosubamol. The key step includes a recently developed gold-catalysed hydroarylation reaction for the construction of the dibenzocycloheptene motif. Additional steps are a Suzuki-Miyaura cross coupling, a palladium-catalysed hydroxylation and an allylic oxidation. To access the saturated seven-membered ring system an iridium-catalysed hydrogenation proved to be successful.
