The reaction of α, β-unsaturated ketones with 3, 4-dihydro-β-carboline was investigated. The main products of these reactions are octahydro-2-oxoindolo [2, 3-a] quinolizines, or derivatives of a new type of ring system (IV), according to the conditions used. The structure of ring skeleton IV is supported by physical and chemical investigations.
