Synthesis of novel thieno[3’,2’:2,3]pyrido[4,5-d]pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-5-one derivatives (5) via Pictet-Spengler cyclization is reported. The key intermediate, 2-(3-amino-4-cyano-5-phenylaminothieno-2-yl)-4H-pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-one (3), was readily prepared from 2-chloromethyl-4H-pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-one (1) with potassium (2,2-dicyano-1-phenylaminoethen-1-yl)thiolate (2) by Thorpe-Ziegler isomerization. Reaction of the intermediate amine with aromatic aldehydes in the presence of p-TsOH gives tetracyclic thienopyridine-fused pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidines 5 in good yields.
