Pummerer reaction of N-trimethoxybenzyl-N-[2-(phenylsulfinyl)ethyl]formamides (7) gave N-formyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-4-phenyl-sulfanylisoquinolines (9) which were converted into trimethoxylated 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloids in the family of Cactaceae, formylanhalinine (10a), nortehaunine (12a), anhalinine (12b), and tehaunine (13a).
