The N-alkyl-2-cyano-1-azadienes (2a) and (2b) derived from ethanolamine react with 2-vinylindole under thermal conditions to give the Michael addition adducts (9) and (9’) as the principle product. In the reaction of 2a with vinylindole the Diels-Alder product (11) was also isolated. In the reaction with 2b, formation of compounds (9) was accompanied by the cyclized product (10) and the Diels-Alder adduct (13).
