Some transformations of 3,4:3'2 tetrahydrofurano-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolines


Under the action of KMnO4 in acetone on derivatives of 3,4∶3′,2′-tetrahydrofurano-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline, the nitrogen ring is dehydrogenated with a simultaneous opening of the furan ring, resulting in the formation of quinolylethyl alcohols. Hydrogenated furanoquinolines, containing the vinyl group in the 2-position, are oxidized toα-quinolones in this case.
