Abstract: The reaction of 5-halogenouracil and uridine derivatives 1 and 7 with active methylene compounds under basic conditions produced diverse and selective C-C bond formation products by virtue of the nature of the carbanions. Three different types of reactions such as the regioselective C-C bond formation at the 5- and 6-positions of uracil and uridine derivatives (products 2, 5, 8, 17, 20 and 21), and the formation of fused heterocycle derivatives 2,4-diazabicyclo[4.1.0]heptane (15) and 2,4-diazabicyclo-[4.1.0]nonane (16) via dual C-C bond formations at both the 5- and 6-positions were due to the different active methylene compounds used as reagents.
Keywords: C-C bond formation; active methylene; carbanion; uracil; uridine
