A facile synthesis of novel pyrrolizidines under classical and ultrasonic conditions.


Novel pyrrolizidines (1) were synthesized from 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of azomethine ylides and dipolarophiles (4). The reactions were highly diastereoselective and regioselective and were carried out under reflux and ultrasonic condition at room temperature. In general, milder conditions and moderate improvements in rates and reaction times were observed… (More)
