The reaction of ethyl benzylidenecyanoacetate (1) with hippuric acid (2) in acetic anhydride leads to pyrrole derivative 5 together with the acetyl derivative 6. Treatment of 5 with ethyl acetoacetate, acetylacetone and malononitrile give the pyrrolo[3,4-b]pyridines 7, 10 and 11 respectively. Coupling of 5 and 7 with benzenediazonium chloride yield the phenylazo derivatives 8 and 9 respectively. On the other hand, ethyl cyanoacetate reacts with 5 to give the pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyridine derivative 13.
