An Efficient One-Pot Synthesis of Triamides and Amidodiesters


An efficient one-pot procedure has been proposed for the synthesis of compounds containing three carboxamide groups or one carboxamide and two ester groups. The procedure is based on three-component condensation of alkyl isocyanides with 5-alkylidene- or 5-arylmethylene-substituted Meldrum's acids in the presence of such nucleophiles as phenols and amines.
