Two synthetic routes to the achievement of the title compound are described. The [1]benzoxepino[4,5-c]quinoline nucleus was prepared by nucleophilic aromatic fluoride displacement-cyclization and functionalized with N-methylpiperazine moiety. Alternatively the oxepino ring closure is shifted as the final step. An oxepine ring cleavage occurred in compounds (9) and (3); a mechanistical interpretation is proposed.
