Reactions of N-mthyl quaternary salt (2) of 1-azadibenzo[c,f]bicyclo[3.3.1]nona-3,6-diene (1) with various bases were examined, and consequently, 6-aza-6-methyldibenzo[b,i]bicyclo[3.2.2]nona-2,8-dime (4) was selectively obtained by the reaction of 2 with potassium t-butoxide in dioxane, in contrast 1-aza-1-methyl-5-methylenedibenzo[c,f]octa-3,6-diene (3) was provided as a sole product by the reaction with potassium hydroxide in water, respectively. Isopavine alkaloids, (±)-amurensinine and (±)-reframine were also derived.
