The synthesis of new [4,3-c]pyridazin-5(6H)-one from ethyl 3-methyl-4-pyridazinecarboxylate
using an enamination/ring closure sequence is described. The starting material is easily available from a hetero Diels-Alder reaction between a 1,2-diaza-1,3-diene and ethyl vinyl ether and oxidation of the resulting 1,4,5,6-tetrahydropyridazines.
