An efficient method for the synthesis of hitherto unknown alkyl(or aryl)pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxalin-4(5H)-ones 8a-g, 16 and 17 has been established. The method is based on the synthesis of the corresponding N-alkyl(or aryl)-1-(2-nitrophenyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamides 3a-c and 7a-c,e which undergo denitrocyclisation with NaH in DMF in 4.5 or 2 h. When 3a was treated with NaH in DMF for 30 min the product of a Smiles rearrangement, 9, was isolated. Under similar conditions but for 4.5 h 9 was converted into 8a. This confirms the involvement of a Smiles rearrangement during the denitrocyclisation process. Conversion of 3b into isomeric pyrroloquinoxalinones 12 and 13 confirms a process involving two pathways, direct denitrocylisation of 3b and Smiles rearrangement of 3b followed by denitrocylisation, respectively. Furthermore, denitrocylisation of 7d into pyrroloquinoxalinones 16 and 17 suggests that similar cyclisation pathways are followed by N-arylcarboxamides. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
