Abstract

Efficient Pauson-Khand reactions on quinolines bearing 1-en-7-ynes features gave tetrahydrocyclopenta[c]acridine derivatives. The quinoline intermediates were obtained in two steps: a Sonogashira reaction with functionalized alkynes (TMS, Bu, Ph, CHB2OTHP) followed by a Grignard reaction with allylmagnesium bromide. The sequence provides new acridine structures in four high yielding steps from commercially available quinolines.
