Reactions of methyl 3-cyclopropyl-3-oxopropanoate with chloroacetone and ammonia, benzaldehyde and ammonia, and benzoquinone gave, respectively, methyl 2-cyclopropyl-5-methyl-1H-pyrrole-3-carboxylate, dimethyl 2,6-dicyclopropyl-4-phenyl-1,4-dihydropyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate, and methyl 2-cyclopropyl-5-hydroxy-1-benzofuran-3-carboxylate. Cyclization of methyl 3-cyclopropyl-3-oxopropanoate with ethyl chloro(arylhydrazono)ethanoates and other halohydrazones led to the formation of 3-substituted 1-aryl-5-cyclopropyl-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxylic acids, and 5-cyclopropyl-1-(quinolin-5-yl)-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carboxylic acid was obtained by reaction of the title compound with 5-azidoquinolines.
