Herein, we describe a practical two-step synthesis of an indolo[3,2-c]quinoline scaffold from substituted 4-methoxyquinolines using Fischer indole method and oxidative aromatization in one-pot under microwave radiation. With this protocol, a biologically active natural product, isocryptolepine, and its analogues can be readily and efficiently accessed. Also, this method has been efficiently utilized to generate a series of novel pyrrole-containing derivatives of this heterocyclic system.
