Reactions of cyclic ketones such as α-tetralone, 1,3-cyclohexanedione, or naphthalenedione with formamide or trisformylaminomethane (TFAM) have shown to form polyclic fused pyrimidines by us. Reactions of terpene ketones like l-menthone, d-camphor, l-carvone with TFAM were performed, and 8-isopropyl-5-methyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydroquinazoline, borno[2,3-d] pyrimidine, and 5-isopropenyl-8-methyl-5,6-dihydroquinazoline were expectedly obtained from three terpenes. Minor products of 5-isopropenyl-8-methyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydroquinazoline and 5-isopropenyl-8-methylquinazoline were formed with 5-isopropenyl-8-methyl-5,6-dihydroquinazoline by disproportionation reaction of l-carvone. Furthermore, No-formylmenthylamine, N-formylbornylamine, and N-formylcarvylamine were obtained as the Leuckart-type products terpene ketones in these reactions. The reaction of N-benzyl-4-piperidone with TFAM gave desired 6-benzyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydropyrido[4,3-d]pyrimidine. The reaction of diethyl succinylsuccinate with TFAM afforded tricyclic 4,9-dioxo-3,4,8,9-tetrahydropyrimido[4,5-g]quinazoline. Above compounds were determined by the measurements of their instrumental analyses.
