Three-component reaction toward polyannulated quinazolinones, benzoxazinones, and benzothiazinones
Kröger D., Schlüter T., Fischer M., Geibel I., Martens J.
An efficient conversion of readily accessible cyclic imines with acid chlorides, that are able to take part in nucleophilic aromatic substitution (SNAr) reactions is realized in a new three-component, one-pot reaction, giving at least tricyclic annulated quinazolinones, benzoxazinones, and benzothiazinones as a result of the employed nitrogen, oxygen, or sulfur nucleophiles, respectively. Especially in the case of quinazolinones, this convenient strategy enables the access to heterocycles of heightened diversity, which offer the development of efficient derivatizations of the elaborated heterocyclic scaffolds. In a subsequent Heck or Ullmann cyclization, further annulations to the mentioned quinazolinones can be carried out.
