Abstract: Some new synthese for pharmacolgically interetsing 2-quinolones are described:
4-chloro-2-quinolones with electron withdrawing groups in position 3 react with CH-acidic compounds such as malonates to give 4-alkylquinolones, which have found interest because of its antivital activity.
The thermolysis of quinoline-4-malonates gives the corresponding acetates, again a class of compounds with pharmacological interest. With nitro substituents in position 3, isoxazoles are formed on thermolysis. The thermolysis conditions are studiedby DSC.
The Wittig reaction od quinoline-2,4-diones with alkyl-triphenylphosphoniumhalogenides leads to
4-Alkyliden-2-quinolones, which show antiviral properties.
