Total synthesis of the reported structure of naturally occurring picrasidine-H (dimeric 4-methoxy-β-carboline alkaloid) was accomplished. However, the synthesized compound was not identical with the natural product. Our precise considerations revealed that the reported structure of picrasidine-H had been incorrectly characterized.
