- Aminolithiation–arylation tandem cyclization of N-(2-fluorophenyl)methylaminoalkylstyryls proceeded smoothly to give hexahydro-2H-pyrido[1,2-b]isoquinoline using a stoichiometric amount of n-BuLi with high trans selectivity. The arylation reaction was highly accelerated by the addition of HMPA. Both pyrido- and pyrrolo-[1,2-b]isoquinoline were successfully constructed by this tandem reaction.
