GifIV Oxidation of Some Indolic Alkaloids*

The title oxidation was performed on four indolic alkaloids, β-carboline (1), reserpine (6), ajmaline (10) and ibogaine (11), leading to alicyclic hydroxylation of the starting materials. The numerous side products characterised during this reaction (due to reduction or coupling with solvent) as well as selective deuterium labelling experiments enabled us apart from the oxidation sites to study the Gif reaction mechanism.
