Reaction of o-Aminobenzamides with Dialkyl Carbonates and Ionic Liquids: A Novel one-pot, High-yield, Microwave-assisted Synthesis of 1-Alkylquinazoline-2,4-diones
Keywords:Quinazolinedione, alkylation, carbonate, ionic liquid, microwave
AbstractA simple and efficient methodology for the synthesis of 1-alkyl-2,4-(1H,3H)-quinazolinediones from o-aminobenzamides has been developed. The novel one-pot cyclization-alkylation reactions are easier and faster than any other reported protocols and resulted in excellent yields (96-98%) and high purities, making this methodology suitable for library synthesis in drug discovery efforts. By applying microwave irradiation at 130 °C and in the presence of ionic liquids, dimethyl or diethyl carbonates simultaneously act as carbonylating and alkylating agents.
