A new stereoselective total synthesis of (±)-deoxyaspidodispermine (I) was achieved; the feature of the present synthesis was to involve the photosensitized oxygenation of the diene (V) by singlet oxygen, exclusively furnishing the cyclic peroxide adduct (VI) of 6-orientation, which might be regarded as a biomimetic process subsequent to Djerassi’s work on the removal of the angular ethyl group of Aspidosperma alkaloids.
