An endocyclic enamide having a unique bicyclic structure including a 1,2,4-triazine-3,6-dione subunit was used as an olefin partner in the Povarov reaction. This represents an efficient strategy to access a new family of fused tetracyclic N-heterocycles which combine in their structure two scaffolds of interest in medicinal chemistry, a tetrahydroquinoline (THQ) and an aza-diketopiperazine (aza-DKP).
