Reaction of 3-Ethoxycarbonylindolizine-1,2-dicarboxylic Anhydride with (3-Bromo-4-pyridyl)triisopropoxytitanium: Synthesis of 5,12-Dimethylindolizino[2,1-g]isoquinoline (Ellipticine Analogue)

Reaction of indolizine-1,2-dicarboxylic anhydride with (3-bromo-4-pyridyl)triisopropoxy-titanium gave 2-(3-bromoisonicotinoyl)-3-ethoxycarbonyl--indolizine-1-carboxylic acid as the sole product. The indolizine-1-carboxylic acid could be converted to 5,12-dimethyl-indolizine-[2,1-g]isoquinoline in six steps.
