The introduction of chlorine atoms into aromatic rings of berbines was effected from an ethoxycarbamido group which does not undergo decomposition under the conditions of the Bischler-Napieralski reaction. At the end of he synthesis of the berbine ring system this group was transformed into a primary aromatic amine which was converted into chlorine by the Sandmeyer reaction. Thus berbines 6a,b chlorinated in the aromatic ring A and berbines 10a,b chlorinated in the aromatic ring D were prepared. The preparation of the starting β-phenethylamines 1a,b with an ethoxycarbamido group was also discussed.
