Two previously unknown pyridoisoindolones have been synthesized from N-allylphthalimide as the common precursor. The methodologies allowing these constructions include a novel twofold dehydrobromination involving an N-acyliminium ion that experiences regiocontrolled hydration. The synthetic routes are completed by indirect introduction of the diene unit.
