Chloracylamido derivatives IIIa-Va were obtained by acylation of 4-amino-s-hydrindacene with chloroacetyl chloride, 2-chloropropionyl chloride and 3-chloropropionyl chloride; their reactions with excessive diethylamine, pyrrolidine, piperidine and morpholine afforded the title compounds IIIbcde-Vbcde. A reaction of 4-amino-s-hydrindacene with benzoyl isothiocyanate gave 1-benzoyl-3-(s-hydrindacen-4-yl)thiourea (VI) whose mild alkaline hydrolysis resulted in N-(s-hydrindacen-4-yl)thiourea (VII). The following treatment with methyl iodide and then with ethylenediamine afforded the imidazoline derivative VIII in a low yield. N-(s-Hydrindacen-4-yl)-2-piperidinoacetamide (IIId) in the form of the hydrochloride revealed a high degree of local anaesthetic and antiarrhythmic activity.
