A concise method of constructing polycyclic tropinone frameworks was developed. The single-step synthesis of polycyclic tropinone consists of an intramolecular (4+3) cycloaddition reaction of N-nosyl-pyrrole with oxyallyl cation that was generated in situ by an intermolecular condensation reaction of the nucleophilic functional groups on a tethered pyrrole with the aldehyde of 2-(silyloxy)-acrolein. This cascade reaction afforded various polycyclic tropinones including tri-, tetra-, and pentacyclic systems in high yields as single diastereomers.
