Utilising our earlier intermediate obtained by the umpolung reactivity of quinolizidine enamines, a new heterocyclic system: (11bSR, 15aSR)-1,2,3,6,11,14,15,15a-Octahydro-5H-indolo [2′,3′:3,4]pyrido[2,1-j]-1,6-naphthyridin-13(12H)-one was synthesised and its biological effects evaluated. Although modest, significant and selective effects were detected.
