1,3-Dichlorobenzo[f]quinoline 2 was obtained from 1-hydroxybenzo[f]quinolin-3-one
1. Nucleophilic substitution, hydrolysis, hydrazinolysis and azidation
reactions of compound 2 have been studied and found to be regioselective.
Also, 1-Aminobenzo[f]quinolinone 11 was obtained and transformed into benzoquinolinylthiourea
derivative 12, naphtho-naphthyridinedione 13, benzoquinolinylhydrazone
15 and benzo[f]quinolinylenamine 17.
