Total Synthesis of (-)-Reserpine Using the Chiron Approach.


PMID 11671435

Abstract

A highly stereocontrolled synthesis of ring D/E precursor to reserpine has been developed starting from (-)-quinic acid as a chiral template. The total synthesis of (-)-reserpine is described through the cyclization of an immonium lactam intermediate.
