Photocatalysed addition of pyrrolidines to butenolides: a concise synthesis of the pyrrolizidine alkaloid ring system

Abstract

The regiospecific and stereoselective photocatalysed addition of N-substituted pyrrolidines to 5(S)-substituted furan-2-(5H)-ones (butenolides), and subsequent conversion of the adduct from N-(trimethylsilyl)pyrrolidine into the 1-azabicyclo[3.3.0]octane ring system of the pyrrolizidine alkaloids are described.
