Stonehouse, Jeff, Lee, James, Roberts, Paul, Thomson, James and Davies, Stephen (2012) Asymmetric synthesis of (-)-(S,S)-homaline. Tetrahedron letters, 53 (9). pp. 1119-1121. ISSN 0040-4039


The asymmetric synthesis of (–)-(S,S)-homaline was achieved in 8 steps and 18% overall yield from commercially available starting materials, using the diastereoselective conjugate addition of lithium (R)-N-(3-chloropropyl)-N-(α-methyl-p-methoxybenzyl)amide to methyl cinnamate as the key step.
