Abstract

A novel ring transformation of 3-methyl-5-nitropyrimidin-4(3H)-one with ketones in the presence of ammonia was found to be an elegant method for synthesizing 5,6-disubstituted pyrimidines. Tetrahydroquinazoline was readily obtained in good yields when cyclohexanone was employed as a substrate. The present reaction was applicable to cyclopentanone, acetophenone and p-nitroacetophenone to give the corresponding pyrimidine derivatives.
