Cyclic 1,4-diazadiene (2,3-dihydro-5-methyl-6-phenylpyrazine) and diketone (1-phenyl-1,2-propanedione) yielded two products via dehydration–condensation of the diamine and diketone moieties when a mixture of H2O and MeOH was used as the solvent. The structures of the new products were established by 2D NMR analysis. Single-crystal X-ray structural characterization and density functional theory calculations allowed us to determine that this reaction took place via reaction of the enamine tautomer.
