    • Abstract


      A facile and convenient method for the synthesis of substituted 2-(isoquinolin-1-yl)benzoic acids from isoindoloisoquinolinones in the presence of molecular iodine under sealed tube condition at 100◦C has been developed. This methodology involves the oxidative dehydrogenation and ring opening of hydroxylactam/methoxy lactam to furnish the 2-(isoquinolin-1-yl)benzoic acids. Some of these acids are successfully cyclized to furnish the azabenzanthrone derivatives, the potential precursors for the synthesis of menisporphine alkaloids and daurioxoisoaporphines.
