A new method for synthesis of N1-monosubstituted uracils and 5- and 6-methyluracil derivatives was developed. It consists in the selective N1-deprotection of N1,N3-dibenzoyluracils in anhydrous dimethylformamide in the presence of potassium carbonate at room temperature and subsequent N1-alkylation by allyl, benzyl or phenacyl type halides or by primary alcohols toluenesulfonates conducted one-pot without isolation of the intermediates. Final N3-debenzoylation by aqueous-alcoholic solution of ammonia affords the corresponding N1-monosubstituted uracil derivatives with overall yields of 52-84%.
