A versatile synthesis of 2-substituted 1-methyl- and 1,4-dimethyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-6H-pyrazino[2,1-b]quinazoline-3,6-diones is presented, starting from 2-(1-bromoethyl)quinazolin-4(3H)-one. The key step of the reaction sequence is the diastereoselective cyclization of 2-{[1-(N-2-haloacyl-N-substituted amino]ethyl}quinazolin-4(3H)-ones. Usually 1,4-dimethyl derivatives are obtained as pure racemic cis-compounds (2-alkyl and 2-benzyl derivatives), or a mixture of diastereomers, containing the 4-methyl group in quasiaxial position.
