The behavior of the 2(5H)-furanones (1-3) towards p-methoxy- and p-nitrophenyl azides (4 and 12) has been investigated, in particular with respect to the regio- and stereoselectivity. The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of the azometbine ylide generated by thermal ring opening of dimethyl trans-1-(p-methoxyphenyl)aziridine-2,3-dicarboxylate (22) to 2(5H)-furanones (1-3) proceeds in good yield and affords functionalized furo[3,4-c]pyrrol-3-one derivatives.
