(Cyanomethylene)tributylphosphorane (CMBP) can promote the Mitsunobu reaction of 1,3- and 1,5-diols with N-nonsubstituted sulfonamides, such as tosylamide (TsNH2) and 3,3-dimethoxypropylsulfonamide (DimpsNH2), to prepare azetidine and piperidine ring systems directly. Utilizing this methodology, lupinine, a biologically active piperidine alkaloid, was synthesized.
