A concise enantio- and stereocontrolled synthesis of (+)-lycoperdic acid is presented. The stereochemical control is based on iminium-catalyzed Mukaiyama–Michael reaction and enamine-catalyzed organocatalytic α-chlorination steps. The amino group was introduced by azide displacement, affording the final stereochemistry of (+)-lycoperdic acid. Penultimate hydrogenation and hydrolysis afforded pure (+)-lycoperdic acid in seven steps from a known silyloxyfuran.
