Abstract

Synthetic approaches to morphine and hasubanan alkaloids involving novel reactions for the formation of their dihydrobenzofuran, piperidine and pyrrolidine ring, respectively, are described. The importance of conformational constraints for the success of these reactions is demonstrated. The syntheses of new dioxepanes, diazepanes, dithiocanes, triazenes and dioxonanes are also reported.
