The heterocyclic portions of yuzurimine-type alkaloids, such as deoxyyuzurimine and macrodaphnine, were synthesized by using a stereoselective hydroboration-oxidation reaction to install the C20 methyl group, the intramolecular Mitsunobu reaction to construct the E-ring portion, and the intramolecular SN2 reaction to construct the F-ring portion as key steps.
