g-Oxo carboxylic acids in heterocyclic synthesis: Part IV–Synthesis of some pyridazines containing phthalyl and tosyl amino acids using DCC as the condensing agent

IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D 237 / 00

3 (2H)-Oxo-, 3-mercapto- or 3-amino-pyridazine deri­vatives 3, 5 and 6 have been coupled with N-phthalyl- or N-tosyl-amino acids in one-step at room temperature by using N,N¢-dicyclo-hexylcarbodiimide as the condensing agent to furnish the corresponding 3-N-(phthalyl- or tosyl-amino acids)pyridazine derivatives (7-9)a-h, respectively. Hydrazinolysis of the N-phthalyl derivatives (7-9)a-d in methanol yield the corresponding unprotected derivatives (7-9)i-l. The antibacterial activity of the prepared compounds has been tested.
