Graphical Abstract:


A reaction of 2-amino-N'-arylbenzamidines with triethyl orthoformate, orthoacetate and orthopropionate leads to quinazolin-4(3H)- imines. These compounds transform to 4-arylaminoquinazolines by heating in acetic acid according to the Dimroth rearrangement mechanism. Unexpectedly, these imines heated in ethanol gave mixtures of 4-arylaminoquinazolines and 4- ethoxy-quinazoline.

Keywords: Quinazolinimines, quinazolines, Dimroth rearrangement, orthoformate, orthoacetate, orthopropionate, cyclization, 4- ethoxyquinazoline.
