We describe, in full, the enantioselective synthesis of the tetrahydrobenzylisoquinoline alkaloid (-)-norarmepavine (1) in 77% e.e. This compound was prepared using solid-supported reagents and scavengers in multi-step sequences of reactions to give materials that required no conventional purification at the individual steps.
