Convergent total synthesis of (+/-)-apomorphine hydrochloride was accomplished by an approach that employs in the key step a sequence of transformations involving a [4+2]-cycloaddition reaction followed by a hydrogen migration. Through this sequence of transformations, the desired aporphine core was obtained regioselectively in 75% isolated yield. Since only one regioisomer was produced in the key step of the synthesis, a polar [4+2]-cycloaddition mechanism was proposed. Furthermore, NMR experiments and theoretical calculations were carried out to elucidate the hydrogen migration mechanism. (+/-)Apomorphine hydrochloride was achieved after 9 steps in an overall yield of 8% involving benzyne chemistry.
