Synthesis and behaviour of 2-carboxyvinyl-6,8-dibromo-4H-3,1-benzoxazin-4-one towards nitrogen, carbon and sulphur nucleophiles


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Interaction of 6,8-dibromoanthranilic acid with maleic anhydride in boiling n-butanol yields the malanilic acid derivative, which undergoes ring closure by heating with acetic anhydride and gives the 4H-3,1-benzoxazin-4-one derivative. Hetero-ring opening of the oxazinone nucleus by hydrazine hydrate in boiling ethanol followed by cyclisation affords the pyridazinoquinazolinone derivative. Benzoylation of the latter gives compound 21.

Besides this, some novel 6-alkylanthranilic acids required for the synthesis of new spiro compounds have also been synthesized. The importance of alkyl substituent at C-6 position in anthranilic acid has been recognized again in such a cyclocondensation reaction, even when it is carried out under microwave irradiation. This is also supported by molecular modelling.
