Reactivity of 1-methylisoquinoline synthesis of pyrazolyl triazoloisoquinoline and thia-diazolyl isoquinoline derivatives


The reaction of 1-methylisoquinoline 1 with hy-drazonoyl halides 2 in ethanol in the presence of chitosan under microwave irradiation affords triazoloisoquinoline 4. Product 4 reacts with dimethylformamide-dimethylacetal to give ena- minones 7 which react with hydrazonoyl halides to give pyrazolyl triazoloisoquinoline 13. Also, 1-methylisoquinoline 1 reacts with arylisothio-cyanate to give thioanilide 15 which reacts with hydrazonoyl halides to give the corresponding thiadiazolyl isoquinoline derivatives 20, 24.
