Isoquinolines I (R=cyano, H; R1=Me, $PhCH_2$) were treated with $POCl_3$ in DMF to yield 3-chloro analogs II, and tetrahydra compounds. III (R and R1 same as above) were prepared in a similar manner. I (R=cyano, R1=Me) was heated with $POCl_3$ in DMF at $80^0$ to give II (R=cyano, R1=Me). Nitrile IV (R2=cyano) with $POCl_3$ in DMF gave IV (R2=CHO), and a bis(1-isoquinolyl)methan derivative.
