A series of novel tetracyclic tetrahydrofuran derivatives was prepared and evaluated for its potential psychotropic properties. In vitro affinities for multiple dopaminergic, serotonergic, α-adrenergic, and histamine receptors and for the norepinephrine transporter as well as the ED50 values obtained in some in vivo assays for antipsychotic, anxiolytic, and antidepressant potential are reported. Compounds (−)-1, (−)-8d, and (+)-8d have been identified as potential broad-spectrum psychotropic agents.
