The eburnamine/11-methoxytabersonine binary alkaloid 11 has been synthesized and regioselectively hydroxylated at C-17 to give 13 by means of benzeneseleninic anhydride on the analogy with the behaviour of tabersonine 5a towards the same reagent. The reaction proceeds through the initial formation of a 1-azadiene which suffers nucleophilic attack by water. The hydroxylated dimer 13 has been further elaborated into the eburnamine/vindoline binary alkaloid 16, which resulted identical to the product obtained by direct acid promoted condensation of eburnamine 12 with vindoline 4.
