The reaction of 2-amino-4,5-dihydro-3-furancarbonitrile (1a) with methylamine hydrochloride in dimethylformamide gave 1-cyano-N-methylcyclopropanecarboxamide (2). Similarly. 2-amino-4,5-dihydro-4-phenyl(and 5-phenyl)-3-furancarbonitriles [(1b) and (1c)] provided (E)-1-cyano-N-methyl-2-phenylcyclopropanecarboxamide (3). Compound 1b reacted with sodium iodide to give (E)-1-cyano-2-phenylcyclopropanecarboxamide (6). On the other hand, 2-benzamido-4,5-dihydro-3-furancarbonitrile (7a) reacted with sodium iodide to furnish 1-benzoyl-2-oxo-3-pyrrolidinecarbonitrile (8).

Regioselectivity in the Diels-Alder Reactions of 2-Vinylindoles and Pyrano[3,4-b]indol-3-ones with CC-Dienophiles

Ulf Pindur,* Manfred Eitel, and Erfanian Abdoust-Houshang

*Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Institute of Pharmacy, University of Mainz, Saarstrasse 21, D-55122 Mainz, Germany


Diels-Alder reactions of 2-vinylindoles 1 and methylated pyrano[5,4-b]indol-3-ones 6 with acceptor-substituted CC-dienophiles (e.g.propynoates, ethyl phenylpropynoate, acrylonitrile, α-chlnroacrylonitrile, methyl acrylate, 1-penten-3-one) proceed with poor to high regioselectivities to furnish functionalized carbazole derivatives. MNDO calculations have been carried out for the 2-vinylindole and pyrano[3,4-b] indol-3-one parent compounds and, in most cases, qualitative FMO analyses correctly predict the major products. The regiochemistries of the products from the reactions of the pyrano[3,4-b]indol-3-ones 6 with ethyl phenylpropynoate can be predicted by the simple charge controlled orientation in the transition states.

*Organic Chemistry Labratory, State University of Mons, B-7000 Mons, Belgium


Tandem mass spectrometry (MS/NS) has been applied. to investigate the behaviour of 1,2,4-triazolides upon flash-vacuum pyrolysis (FVP) conditions. Monosubstituted (position 5) oxazoles (loss of nitrogen) and in some cases oxygenated cumulenes (loss of 1,2,4-triazole) are the most important pyrolysis products. Pyrolysis at a preparative scale indicates moreover the interest of the technique as the synthetized oxazoles were usually unknown or very difficult to prepare owing the conventional procedures.

The chemical ionization spectra of twenty protonated sydnones were measured by using methane a s a reagent gas. The intense fragmentation reaction takes place from the rupture of the sydnone ring by losing of HNO and CO molecules except for 3-benzylsydnones. The benzylsydnones yield the benzylic (tropylium) cations as the base peak. The NH+4 protonated 3-phenylsydnone results in [M+1]+[M+H+NH3]+ and [M+H+2NH3]+ as the principal peaks without any significant fragmentations.
