Abstract

IN view of the synthesis of dl-sparteine reported by Leonard and Beylen1, we wish to place on record that some time ago we effected the reduction of l-oxysparteine to l-sparteine by treatment with lithium–aluminium hydride. Full details of this work will be published elsewhere in due course.
