Treatment of 6-(N-alkylanilino)-3-methyl-5-nitrouracils (I) with a mixture of phosphorus oxybromide and dimethylformamide (POBr3-DMF) at 80° gave the corresponding isoalloxazines (flavins). On the other hand, treatment of I with POBr3-DMF at 150° led to the exclusive formation of pyrimido[4,5-b]quinoline-2,4(3H,10H)-diones (5-deazaflavins).
