Photolysis of 1,3,5,7,9-pentamethylcyclooctapyrimidine-2,4-dione (1a) prepared by the photoreaction of 6-chloro-1,3-dimethyluracil with mesitylene in the presence of TFA at low temperature resulted in the formation of the 9-exo-methylene derivative (2), which was further converted into a novel cyclopropa-pentalenopyrimidine (5) and a cyclobutaquinazoline (3) through [4 + 2] and [2 + 2] electrocyclic reactions, respectively. The latter (3) was ultimately transformed into the 9,11-diazapentacyclo[,3.02,5.04,8]dodecane-2,4-dione derivative (4).
