Very clean desired product was obtained with no further purification. Mass of crude is 188mg and yield of product is 62%. Optimization of condesation reaction (see TZ5-1) is necessary.

Reaction started at 14:10.



N'-(6-chloropyrazin-2-yl)formohydrazide (1.97 mmol, 338 mg) and phosphorus oxychloride (46.4.3 ml) were combined under argon atmosphere in a flask. The reaction mixture was then heated at reflux for 4 hours and was stirred at room temperature overnight.

Phosphorus oxychloride was removed under reduced pressure to give dark brown solid. Ice-water (8ml) was added to the solid residue dropwise. The resulting aqueous solution was adjusted to pH 6 using concentrated sodium hydroxide silution under external cooling and then extracted with choloroform (3*60ml). The organics were collected in a flask and dried over sodium sulfate. The solvent (chloroform) was then removed under reduced pressure to give brown solid (188mg, 62%).

NMR of the brown solid (crude) was clean apart form the peak of solvent (ethyl acetate) and showed that the desired product was obtained compared to NMR of TZ 2-1 frac 4 (see TZ 2-1). The yield of the desired product is terrible. Further optimization of the first step (see TZ 5-1) was needed to improve the reaction.
