A convergent stereoselective total synthesis of (8’R)- and (8’S)-corossoline (1) has been performed via a multi-step process. Comparison of the mp, [α]D, ir and nmr data of both synthetic materials with those reported for natural corossoline did not allow for the strict deterimination of the donfiguration at the C-8’ hydroxyl group of 1. However, a slight chemical shift difference at the C-8’ methine proton was observrd in the 1H-nmr spectra of the corresponding tris-MTPA esters of synthetic (8’R)- and (8’S)-1, indicating that if the tris-MTPA ester of natural 1 is available, the stereochemistry at the C-8’ hydroxyl group of corossoline will be established.
