A cyclization of 3-substituted 2-alkoxycarbonyl-2-propenoates with acetamidine, benzamidine, guanidine, or 1,1-dimethylguanidine hydrochloride in the presence of 1-2 eq of metal alkoxide afforded novel 5-alkoxycarbonyl-5,6-dihydropyrimidin-4(3H)-ones in good yield (R1=Me, Et, iPr; R2=phenyl, furyl, thienyl, pyridyl, alkyl; R3=Me, C6H5, NH2, NMe2). Substitution of a functional group on the phenyl ring influenced the trans-cis relationship between the 5-proton and the 6-proton of the dihydropyrimidone skeleton, namely the ratio of trans/cis increased from ortho substitution (3/2-2/1) and meta (9/1) to para (only trans).
