Abstract

Reaction of 2,2-dialkyl-3-(dimethylamino)-2H-azirines 1a and 1b with 2,3-pyridinedicarboximide (4) in MeCN or DMF at room temperature yielded two regioisomeric tricyclic 1:1 adducts, the azacyclols 11/12 and 16/17,respectively (Schemes 3 and 4). The structure of 12 was established by X-ray crystallography. Methanolysis of 11/12 and 16/17 led to mixtures of methyl [4,4-dialkyl-5-(dimethylamino)-4H-imidazol-2-yl]pyridine carboxylates 13/14 and 18/19, respectively. The structure of compound 14 is closely related to that of the powerful herbicide 9 (Scheme 9), i.e. the described reactions offer a new synthetic approach to this class of compounds. A mechanistic interpretation for the formation of regioisomeric 1:1 adducts as well as methyl (imidazol-2-y1)pyridine carboxylates is depicted in Scheme 5.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
