DDQ oxidation of 3,8-dioxoerythrinan-1(6)-ene 1 in dioxane gave the ring C/D oxidized product, the dienone 2, while that of 3,8-dioxoerythrinan-1-ene 4 gave the ring B dehydrogenated product 5. The either product was convertible to the same trienone 3 on further oxidation in different solvents. The trienone 3a and 3b were transformed by a conventional procedure to the highly dehydrogenated oxo-erythrinan alkaloids, erytharbine 8a and crystamidine 8b, respectively.
