A Facile method to transform trans-4-carboxy-3,4-dihydro-3-phenyl- 1(2H)-isoquinolones to indeno[1,2-c]isoquinolines.

Abstract

The indeno[1,2-c]isoquinolines are an important class of topoisomerase I inhibitors with anticancer activity. The condensation of Schiff bases with homophthalic anhydrides provides a mixture of cis- and trans-4-carboxy-3,4-dihydro-3-phenyl-1(2H)isoquinolones. Although the cis products can be readily converted to indeno[1,2-c]isoquinolines with thionyl… (More)
