Reaction of 2-phenyl-3-(2-ethoxycarbonylvinyl)indolizine derivatives with polyphosphoric acid gave 8H-benzo[6,7]cyclohept[1,2-b]indolizin-8-ones 2 by an intramolecular acylation reaction. Reaction of 2-phenyl-3-(2-ethoxycarbonylvinyl)indole derivatives gave 5H,10H-benzo[6,7]cyclohept[l,2-b]indol-10-ones 7.
