A novel synthesis of (±)-desoxyeseroline, from the crucial oxindole (15), obtained by a 3,3-sigmatropic rearrangement of the enolate derived from the hydroxamic acid derivative (5) followed by radical desulfurisation, has been described. The requisite C2N fragment has been introduced through a Michael addition of nitroethylene to 15.
