Synthesis of the core skeletons of the polycyclic alkaloids lycopodine and porantherine has been accomplished employing as a key step an Intramolecular Azide-Olefin Cycloaddition reaction (IAOC)/enamine addition/Mannich cascade reaction. Applying this methodology, the first synthesis of C15-desmethyl lycopodine has been developed.
