Reaction of ketene with isoquinolinium cyano(ethoxycarbonyl)methylide (1) gave rise to ethyl 3-cyano-2,3-dihydro-2-oxopyrrolo[2,1-a]isoquinoline-3-carboxylate (6). On the other hand, isoquinolinium bis(ethoxycarbonyl)methylide (2) reacted with ketene to give diethyl 4-methylene-2-oxo-1,2,4,5-tetrahydro-12bH-1,4-oxazepino[5,4-a]isoquinoline-5,5-dicarboxylate (7), which, on amnonolysis, was converted to 2-bis(ethoxycarbonyl)methyl-1,2-dihydroisoquinoline-1-acetamide (8).
