Novel reactions via some β-carboline intermediates have been described. Namely, the carboline(1a) gave the tetracyclic lactam(4a) when it was thermally condensed with the formyl ester(2), while its 9-methyl homologue(1b), on the same treatment, gave the 2-formylindole derivative(12). On the other hand, the carboline(13) yielded the tetracyclic lactam(16) when it was treated with butyryl chloride in the presence of triethylamine, whereas the carboline-acid chloride (18). prepared in situ from the amide-acid(17), took different course giving the 2-formylindole(23) on the same treatment.
