15a-Ethyl-14-carboxylic esters of the title pentacycles (6) and (8) were prepared via Wenkert’s enamine (4). Both compounds can be readily transformed into indoloquinolizinylpyruvate oxime esters (5), key intermediates for the synthesis of vincamine alkaloids. The ring/chain equilibrium observed for compounds (6) and (8) was studied by UV and NMR spectroscopic methods.
