An Intramolecular Rearrangement of 1-Arylazetidin-2-ones in an Acidic Solution

Shinzo Kano,* Tsutomu Ebata, and Shiroshi Shibuya

*School of Pharmacy, Tokyo University of Pharmacy and Life Science, 1432-1 Horinouchi, Hachioji, Tokyo 192-0392, Japan


Several kinds of 1-arylazetidin-2-ones were treated with trifluoroacetic acid to give 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolin-4-ones. In the case of 1-arylazetidin-2-ones possessing a substituent at the 3-position, the rearrangement occurred at both ortho- and para-positions to the substituent located at the 3-position.

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kumamoto University, 5-1 Oe-hon-machi, Kumamoto 862-0973, Japan


The 5-dimethylaminomethylene derivatives (II) resulting from the condensation of the 6-amino-5-benzylideneamino-1,3-dimethyluracils (I) with dimethylformamide diethylacetal underwent intramolecular cycloaddition by thermolysis in sulfolane to yield the respective 1,3-dimethyllumazine derivatives (III), while the photolysis of II in alcohol led to the formation of theophylline via another type of cycloaddition.

Heterocycles. II. Photochemistry of 4-(3’,4’-Dimethyoxyphenylacetyl)-2-methylisocarbostyril and Its Enol Acetates

Masayuki Onda,* Yoshihiro Harigaya, and Tsutomu Suzuki

*School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kitasato University, 5-9-1, Shirokane, Minato-ku, Tokyo 108-8641, Japan


Photolyses of the isocarbostyril (2) and its enol acetates (4) and (5) are examined. The former affords the C-nor-benzo[c]phenanthridine (3). The Z-isomer (4) of the enol acetate isomerizes to, the E-isomer (5) along with formation of the acetylene (6). Photolysis of the E-isomer (5) in the presence of iodine gives the 11-acetoxybenzo[c]phenanthridines (7) and (8). Structures for all photo-products are confirmed on the basis of their NMR spectra.

*Pharmaceutical Institute, Tohoku University, Aobayama, Sendai 980-8578, Japan


The cardiac steroid 3-suberoylbradykinin esters which may possibly occur in the toad venom, were synthesized by the activated ester method. Digitoxigenin 3-hemisuberate and bufotalin 3-hemisuberate were converted by the DCC method to the p-nitrophenyl esters, which in turn were condensed with bradykinin in aqueous pyridine to yield the desired compounds (1c, 2c).
