Lumazine derivatives (6-8), appended with ethynyl groups in positions 7 and 8, were synthesized and examined for their ability to undergo Bergman cyclization. Oxo compound (7) was found to give good yields of Bergman cyclization products (~ 37 %), whereas the analogues (6) and (8) did not cyclize as efficiently or gave no identifiable cyclization products.
