In the course of synthesizing 3-demethyltylophorine (1) by Lewis acid catalyzed intramolecular Friedel-Crafts reaction starting from N-(3-hydroxy-2,6,7-trimethoxy-phenanthr-9-ylmethyl)-2-chloromethylpyrrolidine, two chlorinated phenanthrene derivatives N-(4,10-dichloro-3-hydroxy-2,6,7-trimethoxyphenanthr-9-ylmethyl)-2-chloromethylpyrrolidine (4) and N-(4-chloro-3-hydroxy-2,6,7-trimethoxyphenanthr-9-ylmethyl)-2-chloromethylpyrrolidine (5) were obtained. The structures of these compounds were determined by spectroscopic analysis.
