From noracronycine and 1-hydroxy-3-methoxy-10-methylacridone, a [2,3,4-k,l] fused furan ring bearing an ethoxycarbonyl group was built up. Amidification of this ester function with N,N-dimethylaminoalkylamines allowed us to prepare watersoluble furo[2,3,4-k,l]pyrano[3,2-h]acridine and furo[2,3,4-k,l]acridine derivatives. In the course of attempts to saponify the ester function under aqueous sodium hydroxide basic conditions and to reduce it upon aluminium hydride, an abnormal ring opening reaction of the ethoxycarbonylated furan was ascertained.
