A facile total synthesis of enantiomerically pure (-)-sedamine, known as a naturally occurring alkaloid, was accomplished by use of the diastereoselective addition of Grignard reagent to a chiral 1,3-oxazolidine, and utilizing of 1-aza-4-oxabicyclo[4.3.0]nonane derivative as a key intermediate. A diastereomeric pair, (-)-allosedamine, was also recovered as a minor product.
