Synthesis of Dibenzo[a,f]quinolizinium and 2-Phenyloxazolo[3,2-a]quinolinium Perchlorates via Acid-catalyzed Cyclization of 1-(2-Oxo-2-phenylethyl)quinoline-2(1H)-ones

Treatment of certain N-alkylated quinolin-2(1H)-ones with concentrated H2SO4 afforded oxazolo[3,2-a]quinolin-10-ylium perchlorates via a Z-form enol intermediate while others gave dibenzo[a,f]quinolizinium perchlorates via an E-form enol intermediate. We examined the structure of starting N-alkylated quinolin-2(1H)-ones and found that a methoxy group substituted at R4 is required for the formation of tetracyclic dibenzo[a,f]quinolizinium perchlorates.
