Synthessis of new tetracyclic aristotelia alkaloids


R(-) carvone 6 is converted to the nitromethylcarvone ketals 8a,b, which on condensation with grammine afford the isomers 9a and 9c. 9a on Zn-Hg/HCl reduction and cyclization yields 1a. On the other hand 9c on reduction and hydrolysis affords 2a.
