Several thieno[2,3‐d]pyrimidines have been prepared by intramolecular cyclisation of 6‐(substituted methylthio)‐5‐pyrimidinecarbaldehyde and carbonitrile intermediates derived from 6‐chloropyrimidine‐5‐carbaldehydes and 5‐carbonitriles and methyl thioglycolate or 5‐formylpyrimidine‐4‐(3H)‐thiones and appropriate α‐halogeno compounds. Thienopyrimidines 18 and 5c were nitrated to the corresponding nitro compounds 23 and 24. Hydrolysis at position 4 of compound 18 also occurred during nitration. The est…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
