lmidazolides of 2-hydroxy- and 2-mercaptonicotinic acids with LiCH2CO2Bu-t gave ketoesters which were cyclised with MeOCH=NMe2+ MeOSO3- and i-Pr2NEt or with (RCO)2O-NEt3-DMAP to the title 2-H or 2-R bicyclic esters; the corresponding 3-methylsulfonyl and 3-phosphonate analogs were similarly prepared. The 2-unsubstituted 4-oxopyranopyridine-3-carboxylates were unstable at physiological pH, whereas the thio analogs were stable.
