- A concise asymmetric total synthesis of Amaryllidaceae alkaloid (+)-trans-dihydronarciclasine is accomplished starting from optically pure 7-azabicyclo[2.2.1]heptanone scaffold in 13 linear steps. Key features of the strategy include substrate-directed stereoselective installation of the trans B-C ring junction and regioselective Wacker-type internal olefin oxidation to provide a rapid access to all hydroxyl functionalities over the key cyclohexane ring in a stereocontrolled manner.
