Total syntheses of koeniginequinones A and B, isolated from Murraya koenigii, were newly achieved by constructing of carbazole-1,4-quinone using a one-pot Pd-catalyzed cyclocarbonylation method with 2-(but-2-en-1-yl)-3-iodoindoles derived from known methyl 6-methoxyindole-2-carboxylate and methyl 5,6-dimethoxyindole-2-carboxylate, followed by desilylation, and an oxidation sequence.
