Imidazo[1,2-a][1,8]naphthyridines (9a,b) having the carbodiimide moiety on the position 1 lead to (Z)-aza-aplysinopsins (10a,b) by solid suported reaction on neutral alumina. By flash chromatography these heterocumulenes are stereosapecifically converted to the corresponding methoxyimidazol-4-ones (11a,b) in good yields. In contrast, tandem aza-Wittig-cyclization reaction of imidazo[1,2-a][1,8]naphthyridine (13) having iminophosphorane moiety on the position 2 gives zwitterionic compounds (14a,b,15) by N-annulation under thermal conditions.
