The third part of a planned review on developments in the field of total and formal total synthesis of the post-secodine indole alkaloids focuses on types of rearranged alkaloids, i.e. on the skeletons with altered connectivities next to the indol(e)ine moiety, especially with a new bond to N-1. It reviews the synthesis of melodane, goniomitine, chippiine/dippinine, lirofoline and tronocarpine alkaloids, as well as alkaloids of secoschizozygane/vallesamidine, schizozygane and isoschizozygane type. It covers the literature from approximately 1991 up to May 2011. A review with 115 references.
