Abstract

Reaction of fused 3-(2-bromoethyl)pyrimidin-4(3H)-ones with primary alkylamines gave abnormal fused 3-alkyl-4-alkyliminopyrimidines via a new rearrangement, as well as normal substituted 3-(2-alkylaminoethyl) derivatives. Antidepressive evaluation of these compounds was performed by antireserpine action and one compound exhibited the positive activity comparable to imipramine.
