The present study reports the investigation of the D1 structure-relationships of certain cis- or trans-9- or 11-monohydroxy analogues of (+/-)-trans-10,11-dihydroxy-5,6,6a,7,8,12b-hexahydrobenzo[a] phenanthridine (8a, dihydrexidine), previously identified as the first full efficacy D1 dopamine receptor agonist. The monohydroxybenzo[a]phenanthridines were prepared from the appropriately substituted beta-tetralones using the methods described earlier for the synthesis of their catechol analogues… CONTINUE READING
