This paper reviews the various synthetical methods for the preparation of the two angular benzologs of quinolizinium ions. The best method involves the irradiation of styrylpyridinium salts and stilbazoles for the preparation of benzo(a)- and benzo(c)quinolizinium salts respectively. Some of the alkaloids containing benzoquinolizine system are also reviewed. Various reactions of the two benzologs are also discussed.
