Gattermann reaction on substituted 1-hydroxycarbazoles (4a-d) afforded substituted 1-hydroxycarbazole-2-carbaldehydes (5a-d) from which synthesis of either 2-hydroxypyrido[2,3-a]carbazoles (7a-d) via Perkin reaction or 2-hydroxypyriinido[4,5-a]carbazoles (8a-d) via condensation with urea could be achieved.
