Total synthesis of (−)-codonopsinine via regioselective and diastereoselective amination using chlorosulfonyl isocyanate

Total synthesis of (−)-codonopsinine via regioselective and diastereoselective amination using chlorosulfonyl isocyanate
The total synthesis of (−)-codonopsinine (1) from the readily available (S)-3-chloropropan-1,2-diol is described. The key steps for the preparation of (−)-codonopsinine (1) involve the regioselective and diastereoselective amination of anti-1,2-dibenzyl ether 11 using chlorosulfonyl isocyanate and intramolecular amidomercuration to form the pyrrolidine ring. Notably, the reaction between anti-1,2-dibenzyl ether and chlorosulfonyl isocyanate in toluene at 0 °C produced the corresponding anti-1,2-amino alcohol 12a as a major product with excellent diastereoselectivity (anti:syn = 29:1). This observation can be explained by the neighboring group participation leading to the retention of stereochemistry.
