|Title:||Process for preparing pyrano[3,4-b]indole or thio pyrano[3,4-b]indole derivatives|
|Abstract:||Indole derivatives characterized by having a 1,3,4,9-tetrahydropyrano[3,4-b]indole or 1,3,4,9-tetrahydrothiopyrano[3,4-b]indole nucleus bearing a substituent in position 1, said substituent incorporating an acid, ester or amide function therein, are disclosed. The nucleus is further substituted at position 1 and may be optionally substituted at positions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The derivatives are useful antiinflammatory, analgesic, antibacterial and antifungal agents and methods for their preparation and use are also disclosed.|

|Filing Date:||Mar 05, 1975|
|Claims:||1. A process for preparing a compound of the formula Ia ##STR158## in which R.sup.1 is selected from the group consisting of lower alkyl, lower alkenyl, lower alkynyl, lower cycloalkyl, phenyl, benzyl and 2-thienyl, R.sup.2, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 and R.sup.5 are the same or different and are each selected from the group consisting of hydrogen and lower alkyl, R.sup.6a, R.sup.6b, R.sup.6c, and R.sup.6d are the same or different and selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower cycloalkyl, hydroxy, lower alkoxy, benzyloxy, lower alkanoyloxy, phenyl, nitro, halo, mercapto, lower alkylthio, trifluoromethyl, amino and sulfamoyl, R.sup.7 is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, lower alkyl and lower alkenyl, X is selected from the group consisting of oxy and thio, Y is selected from the group consisting of carbonyl, ##STR159## in which each of R.sup.8, R.sup.9, R.sup.10, R.sup.11, R.sup.12 and R.sup.13 is hydrogen or lower alkyl, and Z is hydroxy or lower alkoxy comprising: reacting a compound of the formula IIa ##STR160## in which R.sup.2, R.sup.3, R.sup.4, R.sup.5, R.sup.7, R.sup.6a, R.sup.6b, R.sup.6c, R.sup.6d, and R.sup.7 are as defined herein and X' is hydroxy or mercapto with a compound of formula ##STR161## in which R.sup.1, Y and Z are as defined herein, in the presence of an acid catalyst. |
2. The process of claim 1 in which the compound of formula IIa is reacted with a compound of formula ##STR162## in which R.sup.1 and Y are as defined therein and Z is lower alkoxy, and the corresponding compound of formula Ia in which Z is lower alkoxy is obtained.
3. The process of claim 1 in which the compound of formula Ia in which Z is lower alkoxy is hydrolyzed to give the corresponding compound of formula Ia in which Z is hydroxy.
