An indole alkaloid, 16-epi-pleiocarpamine was partially synthesized from geissoschizine methylether, using C/D ring opening and reclosing reactions with cyanogen bromide and HOAc-NH4OAc respectively; determination of the absolute configuration of pleiocarpamine was accomplished by this chemical correlation.
