Outlined in this paper is a series of work done towards the construction of bicyclo[2.2.2]diazaoctane structures found in a several natural products. Detailed work is shown for a general method of creating these cores by a domino sequence to rapidly generate these cores with enantio- and diastereoselectivity. A similar sequence this outlined and displayed in the formal synthesis of brevianamide B. This synthesis makes use of a similar domino sequence, but a new source of facial selectivity is used.
