A synthesis of ibogamine was developed by elaboration of 5-carbomethoxy-3-ethylcyclohexene. The latter was obtained as a 1:1 epimeric mixture from condensation of diethyl (2-ethyl-3-oxopropyl)malonate with triphenylvinylphosphonium bromide, followed by hydrolysis, decarboxylation, and esterification.
