Remarkable regioselectivities in the course of the synthesis of two new Luotonin A derivatives

Remarkable regioselectivities in the course of the synthesis of two new Luotonin A derivatives
Ethyl 4-oxo-3,4-dihydroquinazoline-2-carboxylate reacts selectively with trimethylaluminium-activated 2-amino- or 4-aminobenzoic acid ethyl esters to give the corresponding anilides without self-condensation of the aminobenzoate building blocks. After propargylation, the quinazolinones were treated with Hendrickson's reagent, but only the para-substituted ester was found to undergo the expected [4 + 2] cycloaddition reaction, affording a new Luotonin A derivative. A different regioselectivity was observed with the ortho-substituted ester which affords a benzoxazinone under identical conditions. When the ester group in the ortho-substituted intermediate is replaced with a nitrile function, the outcome of the reaction with Hendrickson's reagent depends on the absence or presence of a base (DBU), yielding either a triphenylphosphonium-substituted iminobenzoxazine or a 4-cyano-substituted Luotonin A derivative.
