An efficient preparation of 4-alkylcarbonylmethylideneisoquinoline derivatives via a modification of Jones oxidation and alkene acylation conditions is reported. In addition, evidence on the mechanism involved in the formation of 12-alkylbenzo[c]phenanthridines from 3-aryl-4-methylideneisoquinolines is presented.
