Polycyclic scaffolds found in akuammiline alkaloid natural products can be synthesised from ynone-tethered indoles, via a gold(I)-catalysed dearomative cyclisation cascade sequence. The ynone starting materials are themselves made via a two-step modular synthesis from simple tryptamine and tryptophol derivatives.
