Annulated analogs e.g., I, II of 5,6-dihydroxypyrimidine-4-carboxylate ester and 5,6-dihydroxypyrimidine-4-carboxylamide were synthesized. The intermediary homoallylic amines were subjected to a ring-closure reaction under different reaction conditions. A notable pH-dependency of the ring closure leading to regioisomeric tetrahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]pyrimidines was obsd. Treatment with dimethyldioxirane and base led to 3-hydroxy-4-oxo-4,6,7,8-tetrahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]pyrimidines while m-chloroperbenzoic acid or NBS afforded 3-hydroxy-2-oxo-2,6,7,8-tetrahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]pyrimidines.
