A novel route to (±)-platencin is reported, in which the highly stereoselective alkylative quaternization of a cyclohexenone scaffold via 1,4-diastereoinduction and two radical carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions that involve titanium(III)-mediated cyclization and stannyl-radical-mediated skeletal rearrangement are utilized.
