We report a five-step synthesis of the biologically important 1,1-diarylalkane 1, a potential 5-lipoxygenase activating protein (FLAP) inhibitor that was synthesized previously in 12 steps. In this synthesis, we apply a three-component alkene dicarbofunctionalization reaction as a key final step to assemble the potential FLAP inhibitor 1 from commercially available starting materials. In addition, we also report the synthesis of a variety of new analogs of the inhibitor 1 and its regioisomer.
