Several new 1,8-naphthyridine derivatives (7) and (8) has been synthesized via an aza-Wittig reaction. Iminophosphoranes, 2-ethoxy-3-cyano-5-(2-ethoxycarbonyl)-4-phenyl-6-[(triphenylphosphoranilidene)amino]pyiridine (4) and 2-ethoxy-3-cyano-5-(2-cyanovinyl)-4-phenyl-6[(triphenylphosphoranilidene)- amino]pyridine (5), easily obtained from the 2-chloro-5-cyano-6-ethoxy-4-phenylpyridine-3-carboxaldehyde (1), react with heterocumumulenes such as aromatic isocyanates to give directly the title compounds in an aza-Wittig/electrocyclic ring closure process. The yields were from 60% to 97%.
