Photo-oxygenation of 4-benzyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-5,7-dimethoxy-6-methylcyclopent[b]indole (14), derived from 2,4-dimethoxy-3-methylacetanilide (6) in eight steps, gave, in excellent yield, 1-benzyl-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydro-2,5-diketo-8,10-dimethoxy-9-methyl-1-benzazocine (15), which was converted to 1-benzyl-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydro-2-keto-5,5,8,10-tetramethoxy-9-methyl-6-methylene-1-benzazocine (19).
