Reaction between the optically active glyceraldehyde (1Z) carrying Z-olefin and Meldrum’s acid furnished in one step the tricyclic adduct 3 with trans 5/6 ring juncture selectively under mild conditions by spontaneous condensation followed by the intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction. On the other hand, the E-olefin isomer (1E), under the same conditions, furnished the isomeric adduct 4 with cis 5/6 ring juncture selectively. The former gave a pair of the cis-fused bicyclic carbamates, (22) and (25), while the latted gave the trans-fused pair, (23) and (26), by the following transformations. Although these imply formal chiral route to the heteroyohimbine alkaloids, a new enantioselective route to a secoiridoid monoterpene, (-)-methyl elenolate (37), has also been developed.
