Abstract: Hantzsch condensation of two equivalents of methyl-3-aminocrotonate with (m-and p)-methoxybenzaldehyde afforded the expected products 2,6-dimethyl-3,5-dimethoxycarbonyl-4-(m-methoxyphenyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine and 2,6-dimethyl-3,5-dimethoxycarbonyl-4-(p-methoxyphenyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine, whereas o-methoxy-benzaldehyde produced mainly 1-amino-2-methoxycarbonyl-3,5-bis(o-methoxy-phenyl)-4-oxa-cyclohexan-1-ene. The structure of the product, not previously reported in theliterature, was determined by 1D and 2D NMR spectra and its MS fragmentation. This isthe first example of cyclisation leading to a substituted pyran rather than 1,4-DHP undertypical Hantzsch reaction conditions. A plausible mechanism for its formation ispostulated.
