5-Iodo- and 4,5-dibromo-2-methylpyridazin-3(2H)-ones were aminocarbonylated in the presence of various amines including amino acid methyl esters in a palladium-catalysed reaction. The iodo derivative afforded the corresponding amides with complete conversion and high isolated yields. The dibromo derivative has shown unexpectedly high reactivity in this reaction, resulting in 4,5-dicarboxamides using primary amines as N-nucleophiles. Monoaminocarbonylation has not been observed, i.e., neither 4-bromo-5- carboxamide nor 4-carboxamido-5-bromo derivatives have been formed. However, the use of secondary amines such as piperidine and morpholine resulted in the formations of mixtures of amino-substituted bromopyridazinones. That is, no carbon monoxide insertion took place in these cases. Some mechanistic details of the formation of aminocarbonylation and amination products are also discussed.
