8-Chloromethyl-2,4-dimethyl-9-nitroimidazo[1,2-a][1,8]naphthyridine was synthesized as reductive alkylating agent and its reactivity with 2-nitropropane anion was investigated. The SRN1 mechanism of the C-alkylation was confirmed by the inhibitory effects of p-dinitrobenzene, molecular oxygen and TEMPO. Extension of this SRN1 reaction to various nitronate anions leads after nitrous acid elimination to a new class of imidazo[1,2-a][1,8]naphthyridine derivatives bearing a trisubstituted double bond at the 8 position.
