A short, diastereoselective synthesis of (±)-deethyleburnamonine is reported with an overall yield of ~18% over six steps. The key synthetic step involves an indium(III)-catalyzed tandem ring-opening/Friedel-Crafts alkylation of a donor-acceptor-acceptor amino cyclopropane to generate the ABDE portion of the target.
