Treatment of N3-electron-withdrawing group-protected uracil derivatives bearing a 2-hydroxyethyl moiety at the 1-position with base under anhydrous conditions affords the corresponding 2-oxazolidinone by opening the pyrimidine ring between C2 and N3, followed by ring closure between C2 and the neighbouring hydroxy group. This ring transformation is applicable to various uracil analogues to obtain the desired 2-oxazolidinone in moderate to excellent yield.
