A general strategy for the directed and stereocontrolled assembly of carbon–carbon linked heterodimeric hexahydropyrroloindoles is described. The stepwise union of complex amines in the form of mixed diazenes followed by photoexpulsion of dinitrogen in a solvent cage provides completely guided assembly at challenging C[3 over sp]–C[3 over sp] and C[3 over sp]–C[2 over sp] connections.
