The synthesis of 6,7-dihydro-5H-indolo[1,7-ab][1]benzazepine, 5H-indolo[1,7-ab][1] benzazepine, pyrrolo[3,2,1-kl]phenothiazine and 1-phenylindole was accomplished by cyclization of the corresponding diarylaminoacetaldehydes. Carbazole-9-acetaldehyde gave 2,4-dicarbazol-9-yl-2-butenal. The aldehydes were obtained by acid catalyzed hydrolysis of the corresponding diethyl acetals, which differed considerably in their relative hydrolysis rates.
