A new three-step route to azaspirocycles, e.g. azaspirodecene I, involved organolithium-mediated conversion of β-alkoxy aziridines, e.g. butenylaziridinocyclopentane II, into substituted cyclopentenyl amines, e.g. III, and subsequent hydroboration and cyclization. This methodol. was utilized in the construction of the pentacyclic ring system of cephalotaxine. [on SciFinder(R)]
