Abstract: An aza-ene reaction has been used for the first time for the synthesis of two 5-membered lactam-hydrazides, each with a built-in allylsilane terminator for further elaboration. One of the lactam-hydrazides was transformed via an allylsilane-hydrazonium ion ring closure to a fused tetrahydropyrazole which may be considered as a mono-nitrogen analog of the biologically significant necine bases. A density functional theoretical study (B3LYP/6-21G*) was undertaken to provide insight into the factors that favor a synclinal transition structure of the hydrazonium ion intermediate leading to the tetrahydropyrazole. This stereocontrolled synthesis served as a model for the multi-step conversion of the other lactam-hydrazide, the substituted 2-pyrrolidinone, to necine bases (±)-supinidine and (±)-macronecine. An allylsilane-aldehyde ring closure formed the key step in the synthesis of these natural products.
