A concise biomimetic approach toward transtaganolides C and D involving an Ireland-Claisen rearrangement/intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction sequence suggesting the involvement of pericyclic reactions in the biosynthesis of these biologically active plant metabolites is presented. A final coupling reaction establishes the carbon framework of the transtaganolides.
