A selenium oxide oxidation of hexahydro-1,5-imino-3-benzazocine-7,10-dione derivatives in several aliphatic alcohols to generate C-6 ether derivatives stereoselectively is described. This procedure shows promise for the construction of several renieramycins, such as renieramycins B, D, and V. The results of cytotoxicity studies are also presented.
