Reactions of harmaline with benzyl halide and their ring substituted analogues affords enamine intermediates, photocyclization of which results in the formation of reserpine analogues in high yields. The procedure thus provides a synthetic approach to pharmacologically interesting substances from readily accessible precursors.
