Rotenone (1) underwent the ring transformation into 3-substituted 1-(2-methylethenyl-4-hydroxy-2,3-dihydrobenzofuran-5-yl)-7,8-dimethoxy-1,9b,2,3,3a,4-hexahydro-[1]benzopyrano[3,4-c]pyrazol-1-enes (4a-e) when treated with hydrazines in the strong basic medium. The stereochemistry of the products was established by 1H-NMR spectra confirming the cis B/C fusion.
