(-)-9-Demethyltubulosine [(-)-I] has been synthesized from the tricyclic amino acid (-)-IV through the intermediates (-)-V, (+)-VI, and (+)-VII. The identity of the synthetic (-)-I with a C28H35N3O3 base, isolated from Alangium vitiense, unequivocally established the structure and absolute stereochemistry of this alkaloid.
