Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


Two amino acids play a key role in the first total synthesis of lycopalhineA. l-glutamic acid serves as a convenient chiral starting material for the 13-step synthesis, and l-proline promotes an unusual 5-endo-trig Mannich cyclization that generates the central pyrrolidine ring of the Lycopodium alkaloid. The bicyclo[3.3.0]octanol moiety of the molecule is formed through an intramolecular aldol addition that may occur spontaneously in nature.
