The formation of 1-acetyl-6-methyl-8-hydroxy-5,6,7,8-tetrahydroindolizine (3) from 3-methyl-4-(3- acetylpyrrol-1-yl)butanal (2), coming from the rhodium catalyzed hydroformylation of 2-methyl-3-(3- acetylpyrrol-1-yl)prop-1-ene (1), is reported. Evidences for both the complete diastereoselective cyclization of 2 and the configuration determination in 3 via 1H, 13 C and IR spectra are reported.

Keywords: pyrrolylbutanal, rhodium-catalyst, hydroxytetrahydroindolizines, hydroformylation, 1,3-asymmetric induction
