Regioselective metallation of the 3-carboxamido-α-carboline (1) afforded various 4-substituted-3-carboxamido-α-carbolines. Subsequent cross-coupling methodology applied to the 4-iodo-3-carboxamido-α-carboline (2e) led to 4-aryl-3-carboxamido-α-carbolines. Regioselective lithiation of 3-pivalamido-α-carboline led to 3,4-diaminopyrido[2,3-b]indole (7). Condensation of this diamine with (dichloromethylene)dimethylammonium chloride was then studied and an unusual reaction was observed. Some derivatives of imidazopyrido[2,3-b]indole were thus obtained.
