Several 9-arylaminomethylene-6,7,8,9-tetrahydro-4-oxo-4H-pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidines have been synthesized and studied by1H and13C n.m.r. spectroscopy. The dominant tautomeric form has been established. Fast Z-E isomerisation has been found around the enamino C=C double bond. The effect of the solvent, temperature, and various structural modifications on the equilibrium Z.E isomeric ratios has been measured.
