Abstract: To synthesize 4-chloro-5-methoxy-2-(b-trifluoroethyl)-3(2H)-pyridazinone (4), the reactions of 4-chloro-5-methoxy-3(2H)-pyridazinone (5) with RCH2CF3 (R = I, TsO, MsO, TfO) in different solvents were studied. It was found that methyl group migration took place during this reaction. An oxonium salt 9 was suggested as the active intermediate for the formation of the byproduct4-chloro-5-methoxy-2-methyl-3(2H)-pyridazinone (7) and 4-chloro-2-methyl-5-(b-trifluoroethoxy)-3(2)-pyridazinone(8).
Keywords: 4; 5-Dichloro-3(2H)-pyridazinone; 4-Chloro-5-methoxy-3(2H)-pyridazinone; -Trifluoroethylation; Oxonium; Methyl group migration; Alkylation
