The photochemical reaction of 2-chloro-3-acetylethoxycarbonylmethyl-1,4-naphthoquinone (1b) with various secondary amines (pyrrolidine, piperidine, morpholine, and hexamethyleneimine) provided a convenient, one-pot, preparative route to the heterocyclic quinones (4b) as a mixture of stereoisomers due to the different substituents. A similar photoreaction of 2-chloro-3-ethoxycarbonylcyanomethyl-1,4-naphthoquinone (1c) with amines gave selectively one diastereomer of the series (4c).
The stereochemical studies on these photoproducts were investigated by using the europium-shifted spectra.
