The integration of various metal-catalyzed reactions into a one-pot processes opens an unprecedentedly short and efficient route to the odoriferous alkaloid (R)-(+)-muscopyridine. Importantly, it is shown how metathesis can be used for a most convenient “self-clearance” of a product mixture (see scheme; OTf=CF3SO3).
