Heterocyclic Systems Containing Bridgehead Nitrogen Atom. Part XXXVII. Reaction of Marcapto-as-benzotriazines with Halogenoacetic Acid, α-Halogenoketones and Alkyl Halides

Saroj Bala, Madan Lal Sachdeva, Ram Nath Handa, and Hrushi Kesh Pujari*

*Department of Chemistry, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra-136119, India


Mercapto-as-benzotriazines (IIa,b) obtained by the reaction of corresponding o-phenylenediamines (Ia,b) with thiosemicarbazide, on condensation with halogenoacetic acid, yields benzotriazine-3-thiolacetic acids (IIIa,b) which on treatment with acetic anhydride underwent cyclodehydration to furnish 9H-thiazolo[2,3-c]-as-benzotriazin-3(2H)-ones (IVa,b) and not 5H-thiazolo[3,2-b]-as-benzotriazin-3(2H)-ones (VIIIa,b) as revealed by NMR spectral data. Similar condensation of IIa,b with α-halogenoketones followed by the PPA cyclization of the intermediate ketones (Va,b) yields 9H-thiazolo[2,3-c]-as-benzotriazines (VIa,b). The reaction of IIa with 1,2-dibromoethane yields 9H-2,3-dihydro-6,7-dimethylthiazolo[2,3-c]-as-benzotriazine (VII). Thiazolo-benzotriazine (IV, VI and VII) is a novel and hitherto unknown heterocyclic system and is reported here for the first time.

A New 2-Pyrone Synthesis and Its Application to Bufadienolide Synthesis

Yoshio Takeuchi, Yutaka Makino, Koichi Maruyama, and Eiichi Yoshii*

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University, 2630 Sugitani, Toyama, Toyama 930-0194, Japan


A synthetic method of 4-, 5-, and 6-alkyl-2-pyrones from an appropriately substituted α,β-unsaturated ketone or aldehyde was presented. The reaction sequence consisted of 1) conjugate addition of a methylthio- or phenylthioacetate to the enone by use of the corresponding thiomalonate, 2) acid-catalyzed enol lactonization of the adduct, and 3) oxidative elimination of the thio group. Application of this method to a 21-oxo-20-methylenepregnane leading to a new method for the synthesis of bufadienolides was also described.

Bisaknadinine, a New Dimeric Hasubanan Alkaloid from Stephania sasakii Hayata

Jun-ichi Kunitomo,* Megumi Oshikata, Yoshiko Murakami, and Tetsuro Shingu

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science, Mukogawa-Women’s University, 11-68 Koushien Kyuban-Cho, Nishinomiya, Hyogo 663-8179, Japan


A new type base, bisaknadinine, was isolated from Stephania Sasakii Hayata, and its structure was decided as (I) from spectral data, especially by the application of nuclear Overhauser effect and internuclear double resonance. The chemical oxidation of aknadinine (II) afforded bisaknadinine (I), thus the absolute configuration of (I), except the steric configuration concerning the mode of biphenyl linkage, was proved.

4-Methoxyquinoline 1-oxide reacts with dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate in boiling dioxane affords N-quinolinium ethylide (1), 2-substituted quinoline (2), furo[3,2-c]quinoline (3) and 9-oxo-tetrahydro-cis-furo[3,2-b]quinoline (4). Similar reactions readily proceed at low temperatures in dichloromethane, acetonitrile and DMF to give 2, 3 and 4.

*School of Chemical Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, Northfolk NR4 7TJ, U.K.


Diphenylnitrilimine and methyl nitrile oxide add regioselectively to 1-substituted vinylpyrroles to give 5-substituted-4,5-dihydropyrazoles and 4,5-dihydroisoxazoles, respectively. These reactions and the corresponding cycloadditions involving p-chlorophenyl sydnone and C-phenyl-N-phenylnitrone are LUMO(dipole) controlled.
