The reaction between 2-aminobenzo[a]quinolizidines (2) and mercaptoacetic acid under a variety of conditions led to the thiazolo[2,3-a]isoquinoline derivative (5) instead of the expected spiro compound (1). The same result was obtained when the reaction was carried out on ketone (3). Modified reaction conditions allowed the preparation of an example of structure (1).
