Aporphine compounds constitute a class of substances with important pharmacological properties, including anticancer, antiviral, anti-HIV, anti-inflammatory, and leishmanicidal activities. Consequently, several strategies to obtain the aporphine core have been reported. Herein this review, we provide an overview of two relevant approaches used to construct the C-ring in the synthetic routes developed. The first approach, which is based on a one-bond disconnection, allows C-ring formation using a 1-benzyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline intermediate (mainly) employing cyclization reactions catalyzed by metals or promoted by light. The second approach, which is derived from a two-bond disconnection, leads to C-ring formation via a sequence of reactions starting with {[}4+2] cycloadditions. Through these approaches, aporphinoids with a diverse range of substitution patterns and biological activities can be synthesized. (AU)
