The radulanins are biologically active bibenzyl natural products featuring a synthetically challenging 2,5-dihydro-1-benzoxepine core. In contrast with previous reports exhibiting lengthy strategies, we demonstrate the shortest synthesis of radulanin A to date, featuring a largely unexplored photochemical ring expansion reaction of a 2,2-dimethylchromene precursor. This work was adapted to a continuous-flow setup for larger-scale preparation, in view of biological investigations into the herbicidal properties of this natural product.
