One-pot chemoselective condensation of 1,3-cyclohexanedione, urea or thiourea with aldehydes has been performed by using TMSCl as a Lewis acid in DMF/MeCN. This extended Biginelli-type reaction afforded two families of fused heterobicyclic and spiro-fused heterobicyclic compounds in excellent yields. para-Substituted benzaldehydes exhibited different chemical behaviors to ortho- or meta-substituted benzaldehydes and aliphatic aldehydes. The possible mechanism was discussed to account for experimental results.
