5,6‐Dimethylbenz[c]acridines, functionalized in the 7‐position by the carboxy, carbomethoxy, carboxamido, N‐ethylcarboxamido, acetyl, cyano, chloro, methoxy or amino group are reported for the first time. Also various related 5,5‐dimethyl‐5,6‐dihydrobenz[c]acridines including the 7‐carbomethoxy, 6‐hydroxy‐7‐carboxy, 6‐bromo‐7‐carbomethoxy, 6‐methoxy‐7‐carboxy, 6‐methoxy‐7‐carbomethoxy, and 6‐hydroxy‐7‐N‐ethylcarboxamido derivatives which serve as precursors to the completely aromatized 5,6‐dimethylbenz[c]acridines are also reported for the first time.
