Synthesis of 6,7-dihydro-9,10-dimethoxydibenzo[a,f]quinolizinium salt (2a) and its derivatives (2bg) substituted at the D ring has been achieved from 3-(2-bromoaryl)propanoic acid (3) in four steps for future examination of the inhibitory activity of these compounds against topoisomerase. The dihydrocarbostyrils (5ag), key intermediates in this synthetic scheme, were prepared from the amides (4ag) via intramolecular aryl amidation reactions.
