Application of the palladium[0]-catalysed Ullmann cross-coupling reaction in a total synthesis of (±)-aspidospermidine and thus representing an approach to the lower hemisphere of the binary indole-indoline alkaloid vinblastine

Banwell, Martin; Lupton, David; Willis, Anthony


As part of ongoing studies directed towards the construction of the anti-cancer agent vinblastine (1), the related but structurally less complex natural product aspidospermidine (3) has been synthesized. Two approaches to target 3 were pursued. In the first, which was unsuccessful, the amine-tethered enone 6 was prepared but this failed to engage in the pivotal intramolecular conjugate addition reaction to give the bicyclic system 5. In contrast, the related compound 46, incorporating tethered...[Show more]
