A tandem decomplexation-nitroso Diels-Alder (decomplexation-NDA) procedure has been shown to give the regiocontrol and stereocontrol needed for application in an organoiron-mediated synthesis of the alkaloid hippeastrine, using a selection of nitrosoarenes with functionality present to facilitate removal of the arene after the NDA step.
