Total synthesis of (±)-maistemonine and (±)-stemonamide

Author affiliations


The first total synthesis of polycyclic Stemonaalkaloid maistemonine has been achieved. The efficient approach features a stereoselective intramolecular Schmidt reaction, a ketoneester condensation, and a Reformatsky reaction. Additionally, another Stemonaalkaloid stemonamide was divergently synthesized from a common intermediate.
