Abstract: 2,3-Dichloroquinoxaline and some of its derivatives have been reacted with malononitrile and ethyl cyanoacetate to yield a variety of 3-chloro-2-(cyanomethylene)- 1,2-dihydroquinoxaline derivatives. The reaction of 3-chloro-2-(dicyanomethylene)-1,2- dihydroquinoxaline (2e) with pyridine and its methyl derivatives led to the zwitterionic structures 6a-6c. The structures of the newly synthesized compounds were assigned by spectroscopic data and elemental analyses.
Keywords: 2; 3-Dichloroquinoxaline; ethoxycarbonylcyanomethylene- and dicyano- methylene-3-chloro-1; 2-dihydroquinoxalines; betaine structures; spectroscopic data
