Electron-deficient 1-methyl-5-nitro-2-pyrimidinone is easily attacked by methanol or pyrrolidine to afford the corresponding adducts, respectively, by which aromaticity of nitropyrimidinone is lost. Indeed, the amine-adduct exhibited higher reactivity than that of original structure to facilitate the reaction with 1,3-dicarbonyl compound leading to diazabicyclic compound at room temperature. The amine-adduct also underwent the ring opening reaction to furnish nitroenamines with (Z)-configuration.
