The result of condensation of cotarnine with 1,3-dimethylbarbituric acid depends essentially on the temperature. In a harsh conditions (190 °C, without solvent), an unconventional tandem rearrangement proceeds to give (5aR*,9aS*)-11-methoxy-6,8-dimethyl-7,9-dioxo-5,6,7,8,9,10-hexahydro-5a-H-1,3-dioxa-6,8-diaza-cyclopenta[b]anthracene-9a-carboxylic acid methylamide. The structure of this compound was confirmed by XRD. The rearrangement proceeding via the [1,5] H-shift is similar to T-reactions.
