A practical synthesis of (+/-)-alpha-isosparteine from a tetraoxobispidine core.


PMID 16209519

Abstract

[reaction: see text] The title alkaloid was synthesized in racemic form from 3,7-diallyl-2,4,6,8-tetraoxo-3,7-diazabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane (7) by a regioselective diallylation reaction followed by double ring-closing olefin metathesis and exhaustive reduction. Tetraoxobispidine 7 was itself prepared in three simple operations from dimethyl malonate. The entire sequence to alpha-isosparteine was conducted on a multigram scale and proceeded without recourse to chromatography.
