Synthesis of (22 R)- and (22 S)-27-norspirosolane alkaloids from tigogenin, epismilagenin, and smilagenin is described. The alkaloids were prepared from readily available dinorcholanic lactones via their reaction with 4-chlorobutyllithium followed by substitution of chloride with azide and reductive N-cyclization under the Staudinger conditions.

Asymmetric Total Synthesis of Bufospirostenin A.
The first and asymmetric total synthesis of bioactive bufospirostenin A, an unusual spirostanol with rearranged A/B rings, was accomplished. The synthetically challenging [5-7-6-5] tetracyclic ringExpand
The synthesis of solasodine F-homo-analogues.
A concise synthesis of solasodine analogues containing the seven-membered F ring from diosgenin is reported, which led to the diastereomerically pure 22S N-acylated 26a-homosolasodine derivatives. Expand
