The parent pyrrolo[3,2,1-ij]quinolin-4-one and pyrrolo[ 3,2,1-ij]quinolin-6-one ring systems were made by pyrolysis of appropriate acrylates. In the first case, the cyclisation was effected by flash vacuum pyrolysis (FVP) at 950 °C, in the second case a cyclisation-dehydrogenation was carried out in one step by FVP over a tungsten trioxide catalyst at 525 °C.
