Description We report a preparation of new 6-substituted-5,6-dihydrobenzo[c]phenanthridines by the reaction of azoles with quaternary benzo[c]phenanthridine alkaloids sanguinarine and chelerythrine. The prepared compounds have been characterized by NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Conformational behaviors of carbazole derivatives in solution have been investigated by low-temperature NMR experiments. Barriers to rotation around newly formed C6–N bonds were determined to be 12–13 kcal/mol. Quantum chemical calculations have been used to reproduce the experimental observations. Large structural effects on several 1H NMR resonances were observed experimentally, analyzed by DFT calculations at B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p)/PCM level, and interpreted by ring-current effects of the benzo[c]phenanthridine and carbazole units.
