Hexamethylenetetramine was used successfully as amino- and amidoalkylation cyclization reagent for the synthesis of 3,4-dihydroisoquinolines, tetrahydroisoquinolines and 1,4-dihydro-3(2H)-isoquinolinones. The reagent provides a simple and convenient pathway for the preparation of a range of these compounds.
