Azomethine ylide annulations: facile access to polycyclic ring systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

New annulation reactions of azomethine ylides are reported. Amino acids react with aldehydes that are linked to a pronucleophile (e.g. an indole subunit) to provide rapid access to polycyclic ring systems. Simple amines can also be used in place of amino acids.
