Total syntheses of (+)-camptothecin (1a) and (+)-7-ethyl-10-methoxycamptothecin (1b) from racemic ethyl 1-ethoxycarbonyl-3-oxopyrrolidin-2-ylacetate (7) were accomplished via asymmetric hydroxylation onto C20 of racemic 20-deoxycamptothecin derivatives (3a,b) employing a chiral Davis reagent, (2R, 8aS)-(+)-(camphorylsulfonyl)oxaziridine.
