The 5-dimethylaminomethylene derivatives (II) resulting from the condensation of the 6-amino-5-benzylideneamino-1,3-dimethyluracils (I) with dimethylformamide diethylacetal underwent intramolecular cycloaddition by thermolysis in sulfolane to yield the respective 1,3-dimethyllumazine derivatives (III), while the photolysis of II in alcohol led to the formation of theophylline via another type of cycloaddition.
