Abstract

A concise asymmetric approach to the indeno-tetrahydropyridine core of the unusual alkaloid haouamine B allowed for an investigation of a biomimetic oxidative phenol coupling as a proposed biosynthetic step, and ultimately provided access to the published structure of the natural product. As a consequence of our synthetic studies, the structure of haouamine B has been revised.
