Several new 1,2-diazetines (4a-e) were synthesized via simple cycloacylation reactions of various monoalkylhydrazines (5a-c) with bis-imidoyl chlorides of oxalic acid (1). An X-Ray crystal structure analysis obtained from single crystals of 4a reveals an additional double bond in the 4-membered ring system. Treatment of these heterocycles with strong bases formed delocalized anions (6) which can be methylated giving 1,2-disubstituted diazetidines (7a,b). Alternatively, the latter derivatives can be synthesized via a cycloacylation employing 1,2-dimethylhydrazine and bis-electrophiles (1).
