Carbazole alkaloids obtained from naturally occurring sources have been the subject of extensive research, mainly because of their widespread applications in traditional medicine (Bergman & Pelcman, 1990; Bonesi et al., 2004; Chakraborty etal., 1965; Kirtikar & Basu, 1933). Tetrahydrocarbazole systems are present in the framework of a number of indole-type alkaloids of biological interest (Magnus et al., 1992; Abraham, 1975; Saxton, 1983; Phillipson et al., 1980). These types of compounds possess significant antibiotic, anti-carcinogenic, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties (Chakraborty etal., 1973). The thiophene derivatives possess the antimicrobial activity (Savini et al., 2004). Against this background and to ascertain the molecular structure and conformation, the X-ray crystal structure determination of the title compound has been carried out.
