On treatment with trifluoroacetic acid the tetraene precursor 23 underwent Boc deprotection, condensation and an iminium ion accelerated intramolecular Diels-Alder cycloaddition resulting in an iminium species 12, which was further converted into himbacine 1, himbeline 3 and himandravine 4, three out of four Galbulimina type I alkaloids thus providing strong evidence for the proposed biogenesis of this important family of alkaloids.
