The chemistry of certain imines related to the diterpene alkaloids

  • 28 Accesses

  • 29 Citations

Zusammenfassung

Aconitum- und Delphinium-Alkaloide gehen teilweise ungewöhnliche chemische Reaktionen ein, deren Ursache in der polycyclischen Struktur, im besonderen in deren hohem Grad von Brückenbildungen zu suchen ist.

Einige dieser Reaktionen, speziell solche der Imine und Imminiumsalze der Diterpenalkaloide Atisin und Veatchin werden diskutiert.

    The absolute configuration of these compounds is the mirror image of theat represented.

    In view of recent work on aziridine rearrangements (see review byH. W. Heine, Angew. Chem.74, 772 (1962)) it is interesting to speculate whether the postulated acylaziridine might not readily undergo rearrangement to compound 26a. In fact, it is possible that the product of the reaction in acetic anhydride is actually 26a rather than 26. The NMR data would not necessarily distinguish between the two structures.
