Abstract

2,4-Dichloro pyrimidine-6-carbonylchloride (2) was synthesized by refluxing uracil-6-carboxylic acid (orotic acid) with phosphorus oxychloride and phosphorus pentachloride. Compound (2) underwent a smooth coupling reaction with a number of substituted arylamines to yield 2, 4-dichloro-6-amidopyrimidines (8-12) which were converted to the corresponding 2, 4-dimethoxy-6-amidopyrimidines (13-17) on treatment with sodium methoxide in methanol. Compounds 13-17 afforded 6-amido-(1H, 3H)-pyrimidine-2, 4-diones (18-22) in good yield on refluxing with 6 M hydrochloric acid. These pyrimidinone derivatives may exhibit antiviral actitities.
