3-Cyano-1,6-diamino-2-pyridone derivatives (3) posessing various alkoxycarbonyl groups are prepared directly from the reaction of dialkyl (E)-2,3-dicyanobutendioates (1) with cyanoacetohydrazide (2). The resulting diamine (3) (R = Et) is readily cyclized to 2-substituted [1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]pridine derivatives (5) in high yields by treatment with orthocarboxylic esters (4) such as trimethyl orthoformate or triethyl orthoacetate etc. Furthermore, 3-cyano-6-amino-2-pyridones (6) are although abtained in excellent yields by the reductive deamination of 3. The structural study of 6 was carried out by spectroscopic methods in some details.
