Cycloaddition of diazomethane to 5-methoxyfuran-2(5H)-ones ( 1) occurs in a practically regiospecific manner to give the expected adducts. The cycloadducts are mixtures of the furopyrazoline derivatives 2 and 3 epimeric at C-4, with the exception of those of 1f and 1h that afford only one detectable adduct (2f and 2h) in each case. The regio- and stereochemistry of the adducts follows from the 1H-NMR data. The regiochemistry of the cycloaddition is also corroborated by chemical correlations. Pyrolysis of the epimeric mixtures 2a/3a, 2b/3b and 2d/3d affords the 4-methyl substituted furanones 1c, 1i and 1j in good yields.
