Reaction of 5-methyl-1-aryl-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carbocylic acid chlorides with tryptamine derivatives afforded substituted 1-aryl-N-[2-(1H-indol-3-yl)ethyl]-5-methyl-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carboxamides. At heating these compounds in toluene in the presence of POCl3 and P2O5 Bischler-Napieralski cyclization occurs giving 1-(1-aryl-5-methyl-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)-4,9-dihydro-3H-β-carbolines that can be transformed into β-carboline and tetrahydro-β-carboline derivatives.
