The further studies on the Diels-Alder reaction of 1-methyl-2(1H)-pyridone (I) with fumaric acid and its ester were carried out in various conditiocs. Reaction of I with dimethyl fumarate in toluene gave dimethyl 2- methyl-3-oxo-2-azabicycl[2,2,2]oct-7-ene-5-endo-6-exodicarboxylate (IV). Boiling of I and fumaric acid in water afforded 6-methyl-7-oxo-6-azabicycl[3,2,1]oct-2-ene-2,8-endo-dicasboxylic acid (VI). Heating of I and fumaric acid at 170° gave VI and 6-methyl-7-oxo-6-azabicyclo[3,2,1]oct-2-ene-2,8-exo-dicarboxylic acid (VII).
