Stobbe condensed product half ester (2E;E-1,3,4,5-tetrahydrobenz[c,d]indole-5-ylidene-3’-ethoxycarbonylpropionic acid) afforded a monomer tetracyclic indole derivative (4; 5-ethoxycarbonyl-7-acetoxy-1H,9cH-3,4-dihydronaphto[c,d,e]indole) and a dimer (5; 5-ethoxycarbonyl-1H,9cH-3,4-dihydronaphto[c,d,e]indole-7-(O-E-1,3,4,5-tetrahydrobenz[c,d]indole-5-ylidene-3’-ethoxycarbonylethylpropionate) in an unexpected cyclisation.
