Reactions of trichloromethylpyrimidines (1 - 4) with dimethyl fumarate in the presence of t-butyl isocyanide and copper powder in benzene gave the corresponding dimethyl 3-chloro-3-(4- or 6-pyrimidinyl)cyclopropane-1,2-trans-dicarboxylates (5 - 8). Similar reactions with methyl vinyl ketone afforded the corresponding 2-acetyl-1-chloro-1-(4- or 6-pyrimidinyl)cyclopropanes (9 - 12). Pyrimidinylcyclopropanes (10 and 12), on treatment with sodium ethoxide, underwent ring opening of cyclopropane to give 1-pyrimidinyl-4-oxopentanes (13 - 16).
