This thesis describes work towards an organoiron approach towards the enantioselective synthesis of the alkaloid hippeastrine, starting from enantiomerically defined arene cis diols that can be made by biodioxygenation. Literature reviews of the target class of alkaloids, biodioxygenation, and the stereocontrolled applications of cationic electrophilic pentahapto cyclohexadienylium complexes, and the description of original work on biodioxygenation using R eutropha, and a series of new studies of complexation, activation, and nucleophile addition reactions using the organoiron approach are presented, supported by an Experimental Section to provide details of experimental procedures and compound characterisation.
