The synthesis and characterization of 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I) and some of its derivatives has been performed in our lab. Ring-closing cyclization, as a result of the condensation of ethyl-3-oxobutanoate with thiourea in KOH in an ethanol medium produced 2,3-dihydro-6-methy -2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I). The reaction of compound (I) with 2- chloroacetic acid in an alkaline KOH solution produced the carboxylate derivative, 2-(2,6-dihydro-4-methyl-6-oxopyrimidin-2-yl-thio)ethanoic acid (II). The reaction of the resulted derivative of carboxylate (II) with the salt of copper sulphate, produced a new copper salt (III). A substitution reaction between synthesized compound (I) and 2-chloroethanol in an aqueous solution of KOH, created 2-(2-hydroxyethylthio)-6-methylpyrimidin-4(3H)-one (IV). The reaction of compound (I) with 2-(chloromethyl)oxirane in the presence of an aqueous solution of KOH, resulted yielded 2-(3-chloro-2-hydroxy-propylthio)-6-methylpyrimidin-4(3H)-one (V). Sodium mercaptide compound (VI), was produced by the reaction of (I) with NaOH and then the sodium salt of 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (VI) was reacted with 2-(chloromethyl)oxirane to result in 2-((oxiran-2-yl) methyl-thio)-6-methyl-pyrimidin-4(3H)-one (VII). Different acylation reagents (acetyl chloride, benzoyl chloride) were reacted with compound (I), in dimethylformamide, acylation happens on sulfur and furnished S-acylified derivatives of (VIII-IX). All the synthesized and obtained products were confirmed by IR, 1H, and 13C NMR and elemental analysis.

1. Introduction

Among hexagonal heterocycles, pyrimidine has extensive and special applications in chemistry and biochemistry. The structure of pyrimidine is used in medical compounds. For example, Vitamin B1 or thiamin has the pyrimidine ring in its structure [1]. Synthesized derivatives of barbituric acid and sleep-inducing medications like Luminal and veronal (Barbitone) are also from this category of compounds.

Moreover pyrimidines generally have attracted much interest for their widespread potential in biological activities and medicinal applications, thus their chemistry has been investigated extensively [2, 3]. In particular, various analogues of pyrimidine-thiones possess effective antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-AIDS, insecticidal and medicinal applications [4, 5].

Furthermore many condensed heterocyclic systems, especially when they are linked to a pyrimidine ring, play an important role as analgesic, antihypertensive [6], antipyretic and anti-inflammatory drugs [7, 8]. They also find use as pesticides, herbicides, and plant growth regulators [9]. Among pyrimidines derivatives, uracil is one of the important bases which can be found in nucleic acids and has different efficient derivatives with broad effects.

The importance of uracil and its annealed derivatives is well recognized by synthetic [10], as well as biological [11], chemists. For example, pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidines constitute a class of naturally occurring fused uracils that possess diverse biological activities [12].

5-Flourouracil itself is used in the biosynthesis of the molecular structure of RNA [13]. 5-Bromouracil alternates’ hereditary information carries the chemical properties of mutants at high speed and in mutant parts affect alkaline changes of amines.

According to scientific studies [14], thiouracil derivatives are tranquilizers of the nervous system; they also play protective roles in human immunity against viruses. Other uracil derivatives such as 5-oximethyl-4-methyluracil (Pentoil) and 4-methyluracil (Metoil) are quite effective against colds.

Pentoil, metoil, and uracil play very important roles in anemia, nucleic acid synthesis, and biosynthesis of blood proteins. Derivatives of thiouracil have extended applications in the treatment of nervous disorders. These compounds can also be used for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, migraines, depression and amnesia.

Nowadays, uracil derivatives are successfully applied in immunotherapy and as an implement to show the stability of the properties of the cell membrane [15]. Uracil derivatives are also useful in the biosynthesis of xanthines [16].

Herein, some of the synthesized derivatives of compounds, 6-amino-4-hydroxy-2-mercaptopyrimidine [17], synthesis of uracil derivatives and some of their reactions have been reported alongside our previous investigations [18].

The purpose of this paper in the context of organic chemistry is the “synthesis, cyclization and reactions of given reactants,” which plays an important role in this branch of chemistry. Moreover, uracil derivatives have important usages in medical sciences, as mentioned above. It seems self-evident that these synthesized compounds have also been investigated from a biological point of view and are being studied by biologists and will be presented in a separate paper.

The most available routes for the synthesis of 1-aryl- or 1-heteroaryl-5-substituted uracil derivatives involve condensation reactions [19]. In an effort to increase the molecular structures, that is, in the synthesis of uracil and its derivatives, we have developed a novel synthesis method by applying Diels-Alder reactions [20] and an efficient synthesis by using catalytic material [21].

2. Experimental

3. Results and Discussion

As a result of the condensation of ethyl-3-oxobutanoate with thiourea in a KOH and ethanol medium, in a hot water bath while evaporation of ethanol is in progress, the rest compound dissolved in water. Afterwards, the neutralization is done by HCl or CH3COOH 10%. The result of the reaction is as follow and it produces 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I), (Figure 1). 2,3-Dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I) reacts with 2-chloroacetic acid in alkaline KOH solution at room temperature after 20 h. Then it is acidified by acetic acid and produces the derivative of carboxylate (II), (Figure 2). The resulting derivative of carboxylate (II) produced a new copper salt (III) in the reaction with the salt of copper sulphate (Figure 3). According to the following reaction, 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I) in KOH aqueous solution reacts with 2-chloroethanol after 6–8 h in a hot water bath and produces compound (IV), (Figure 4). In the next step, the reaction of 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one with 2-(chloromethyl)oxirane in the presence of KOH aqueous solution the product will be 2-(3-chloro-2-hydroxypropylthio)-6-methylpyrimidin-4(3H)-one (V) and the reaction is as follows (Figure 5). According to obtained reactions, if 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I) reacts with NaOH compound (VI) is produced, (Figure 6) and then (VI) reacts with 2-(chloromethyl)oxirane and results in a substituted derivative of oxiranyl (VII), (Figure 7).

Different acylation reagents (acetyl chloride, benzoyl chloride) in reaction with 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I), in DMF at 20°C were studied. In this reaction acylation happens on sulfur and produces S-acylified derivatives (VIII-IX), (Figure 8).

In the IR spectrum, the absorption band characteristics of the synthesized derivatives of 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I–IX), appear in the range of 1630–1720 cm−1. This range belongs to the bands of pyrimidine fragments [C=O, =N–C=O].

In this spectroscopy N–H stretching will be at 3300–3400 cm−1; furthermore absorption bands at the region of 3090–3100 cm−1 characterize the interior hydrogen of νNH. The intensity of the band at 1715 cm−1 reveals the existence of ν(C=O) functional group which itself is evidence of the presence of a carboxyl group in the 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one molecule.

Acetyl and benzoyl groups in (VIII-IX) molecules do not cause any differences in the spectrums of IR. It is more probable that stretching νC=O functional group in the region of 1620 cm−1 characterizes the band of νC=O group of pyrimidine. Some compounds have different molecular structures; and their IR spectrums appear in 1170–1180 cm−1 region.

In the spectroscopy of 1H NMR of 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one, the signals of the three protons of the methyl group at a high field 2.1 MHz are observed as a singlet. The single protons of the methine (CH) group in 6.7 MHz and that of amino (NH) group in 12.3 MHz appeared as singlet.

The molecular structure of 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one in 13C NMR spectrum has also been proved. The carbon of the methyl group appeared in a strong field of 19 MHz and the splitting carbon of hydrogen double bond group appeared at the 104 MHz field.

Signals of carbon atoms existing in uracil groups in 13C NMR spectrum appeared at 153 and 162 MHz fields and the signals of the carbon atom of thion- (C=S) group appears at a downfield of 178 MHz. In all of the synthesized and obtained compounds, signals of carbon atoms’ in 13C NMR spectra of pyrimidin-4(3H)-one molecule were 164 (C4), 157 (C2), 153 (C6), and 98–102 MHz (C5). The physical-chemical constants and yields of synthesized derivatives of 2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-2-thioxopyrimidin-(1H)-one (I–IX) are given in Table 1.
