Synthesis of (–)-Chilocorine C
A Concise, Enantiospecific Total Synthesis of Chilocorine C Fueled by a Reductive Cyclization/Mannich Reaction Cascade.

Key words(–)-chilocorine C - [3+2] cycloaddition - cascade reaction - Mannich reaction - Hofmann rearrange-ment
Snyder and co-workers reported the asymmetric total synthesis of (–)-chilocorine C, a defensive alkaloid isolated from ladybugs. Key to the synthesis was a reductive cyclization/Mannich cascade.
Advanced intermediate G, prepared by a [3+2] cycloaddition, is rapidly converted into I containing the tricyclic core of the natural product. Hofmann rearrangement followed by oxidation and aldol condensation leads to O, which is transformed into the natural product in two steps.
