An efficient and diastereoselective method to synthesize highly functionalized cis-decahydroquinolines was reported. The addition of a vinyl aluminum reagent to an aldehyde followed by an intramolecular SN2’ Mitsunobu reaction gave the desired 3,7,8-trisubstituted product designed as methyllycaconitine analogs. An unexpected tandem vinylaluminum addition and Michael reaction to produce a 4-hydroxy cis-decahydroquinoline has also been reported.
