On The Synthesis of Pyridinylthiobarbituric Acids Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The reaction of N-(pyridin-3-yl) and -4-yl thiourea derivatives with malonyl dichloride in trifluoroacetic acid is shown to be an efficient synthesis of the corresponding thiobarbituric acids. The pyridin-2-yl analogue cleaved and produced, instead, 2-hydroxy-4H-pyrido[1,2a]pyrimidin-4-one.
