Die Struktur des O-Methyl-lythrinhydrobromids wurde röntgen-kristallographisch ermittelt. Durch den oxydativen Abbau wurde das Hydrobromid mit dem unsubstituierten Lythrin verknüpft. Die Massenspektren zeigten, dass eine Reihe von weiteren Lythraceae-Alkaloiden das gleiche Grundgerüst besitzen.

Asymmetric synthesis of (+)-vertine and (+)-lythrine.

The total syntheses of the Lythracea alkaloids (+)-vertine and (+)-lythrine are described and alternative classical ring closure strategies like macrolactonisation or aryl-aryl coupling failed.

Biomimetic Total Syntheses of (+)-Dihydrolyfoline and (-)-5-epi-Dihydrolyfoline.

The first asymmetric total syntheses of (+)-dihydrolyfoline and (-)-5-epi-dihYDroly Foline have been achieved in five and six steps with 4.6% and 14% overall yields, respectively, in which the chiral biaryl axes were constructed via a biogenetic enzymatic oxidative couplings of phenols.

Chaenorhin, ein macrocyclisches Spermin‐Alkaloid. 149. Mitteilung über Alkaloide

Structure 1 has been elucidated for chaenorhine, an alkaloid isolated from Chaenorhinum organifolium (Scrophulariaceae), and 21 gave upon hydrolysis spermine and 4-hydroxydihydrocinnamic acid characterized as the tetraacetyl derivative 18 and as the dimethyl derivative respectively.

Total synthesis of (±)-decinine via an oxidative biaryl coupling with defined axial chirality.

The total synthesis of (±)-decinine has been achieved via a gold catalyzed annulation of 1-(but-3-yn-1-yl)piperidine and the formation of the 12-membered ring of decinine with complementary atropselectivity via a VOF3-mediated oxidative biaryl coupling reaction.
