Abstract
(-)-(S)-Brevicolline (1) and related beta-carbolines were synthesized using an enantiomerically pure Michael-acceptor synthon (3). Subsequent Pictet-S pengler reaction afforded the tetrahydro-beta-carboline skeleton, which, in turn, was transformed to the beta-carboline by catalytic dehydrogenation.
