The pain ends here: A novel synthetic strategy for the construction of (±)-morphine rings B and E was developed, in which SmI2-promoted reductive coupling/desulfurization and tandem alcoholysis/oxa-Michael addition featured as the key steps for the assembly of the C9[BOND]C14 and C5[BOND]O bonds, respectively. Asymmetric tandem alcoholysis/oxa-Michael addition was also feasible for the enantiocontrolled synthesis of morphine.
