A regiocontrolled synthesis of 10-alkoxy and alkyl substituted benzo[b]quinolizinium salts is described. Synthesis of a novel 9-alkoxythiazolo[3,2-b]isoquinolinium cation is reported. In addition the synthesis of several new N-alkylimidazo[1,2-b]isoquinolin-4-ium cations is described. Condensation of dianions (1) with heteroaromatic aldehydes and ketones provides diols in 35-85% yield. Cyclization of diols (2) with POCl3 gives previously unreported 10-substituted benzo[b]quinolizinium cations and heteroisoquinolinium cations (3) in 35-90% yield.
