Condensation of 6-chloro-2-oximinocyclohexanone with aminomalononitrile gave 2-amino-3-cyano-5-chloro-5,6,7,8-tetrahydroqinoxaline 1-oxide (1), which upon heating in acetic acid underwent a novel aromatization reaction, with loss of HCl and H2O, to give 2-amino-3-cyanoquinoxaline (3). An analogous aromatization reaction was observed with 3-amino-2-cyano-5,6-dihydrobenzo(h)quinoxaline 1-oxide (9), which gave 3-amino-2-cyanobenzo(h)quinoxaline (10) upon heating with a trace of HCl or H2SO4. These o-aminonitriles were then converted to variously substituted fused pteridine derivatives by conventional cyclization techniques.
