A general strategy for the production of pyrrolizidine alkaloids is described, starting from intermediate (+)-9. The key features are diastereoselective dihydroxylation, inversion at the ring junction by hydroboration of an enamine, and ring closure to form the bicyclo ring system. This route is attractive because of its brevity and versatility; four natural products were prepared with differing stereochemistry and substitution patterns. Finally, this work allowed assignment of the absolute s...Expand abstract
