For a long time, I have been intrigued by the complex structures of Securinega alkaloids. Then, I remember it vividly, the study on the isolation of virosaine A came out, and the next day, Hideki joined my group for a postdoctoral research period. Hideki and virosaine were a perfect match, and we could achieve the total synthesis only months later.
