A Novel Erythrinan and Homoerythrinan Synthesis by Tetra-n-butylammonium Fluoride Induced Oxy-vinyl 1,3-Shift. Synthesis of a 6-Methoxycarbonyl-2,8-dioxo-1,7-cyclo-B-homoerythrinan, a Potential Intermediate to Schelnammera Alkaloids

Photocycloaddition of trimethylsilyloxybutadiknes to an isoquinolinopyrrolinedione followed by treatment of the [2+2]adduct with TBAF furnished erythrinan derivatives in high yields as a result of 1,3-shift. By this method, a practical synthetic route to B-homoerythrinan derivatives is now opened and a 6-methoxycarbonyl-2,8-dioxo-l,7-cyclo-B-homoerythrinan 20, a potential intermediate to Schelhammera alkaloids, was synthesized in an acceptable yield.
