The compound named in the title was prepared from N1,N4-diphenethylterephthalamide 1. The resulting bis terephthalamide was subjected to an intramolecular α-amidoalkylation reaction with paraformaldehyde in the presence of heterogeneous catalyst TfOH/SiO2 to obtain 1,4-phenylenebis[(6,7-dimethoxy-3,4-dihydroisoquinolin-2(1H)-yl)methanone]. The structure of the newly synthesized compound was determined using 1H, 13C-NMR, UV, IR and mass spectral data. View Full-Text
