Abstract

The title compound cis-1, a potential synthon for indole alkaloid synthesis, is prepared for the first time. The synthesis starts with the condensation of 3-ethyl-4-piperidone 2 with triethyl phosphonoacetate followed by stereoselective hydrogenation of the resulting α,β-unsaturated ester 5 to give 4-piperidineacetate cis - 6 as the major isomer. This was converted in high yield to the target molecule cis-1 by a two-step sequence through the corresponding β-keto sulfoxide cis-7.
