Sinomendine (1), a good receptor antagonist of angiotensin II and rare oxoaporphine alkaloid isolated from traditional Chinese drug Sinomenium acutum (Thunb.) Rehd. et Wils, was synthesized from a bromobenzylidenetetrahydroisoquinolineenamide precursor (6). Photocyclization of this enamide led to a protected aporphine (7), which could be converted into oxoaporphine (9) and (±)-sinomendine (1) by Fremy’s salt oxidation followed an available Grignard reaction.
