A radical approach towards indolizidine 167B

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

45 Citations (Scopus)


The alkaloids (+)- and (-)-indolizidine 167B were synthesized via radical addition of a carbon radical to a chiral acrylamide. Further cyclization in the presence of BBr3, treatment with 'nickel boride' and stereospecific hydrogenation over palladium/carbon in acetic acid were other key steps in this synthesis.
