The synthesis of methyl 6-alkylamino-3-pyridazinecarboxylates (4a-c) was accomplished by the following reaction sequence. On treatment of methyl 6-chloro-3-pyridazinecarboxylate (1) with methanolic ammonia, 6-chloro-3-pyridazinecarboxamide (5) was precipitated almost quantitatively, which reacted with primary alkylamines to give the corresponding 6-alkylamino-3-pyridazinecarboxamide (6a-c). These products were smoothly converted into the methyl esters (4a-c) by treatment with methanol in the presence of boron trifluoride etherate. The reaction of 1 with butylamine in THF gave a complicated mixture in which N-butyl-6-chloro-3-pyridazinecarboxamide (2), N-butyl-6-butylamino-3-pyridazinecalboxamide (3), 4b, and 1 were involved.
