Abstract

The equilibrium geometries of 4,7-dihydropyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine, 4,7-dihydrotetrazolo [1,5-a]pyrimidine, 4,7-dihydro-1,2,4-triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine, and 1,4-di-hydropyrimido [1,2-a]imidazole were calculated by the semiempirical quantum-chemical MNDO method. The dihydropyrimidine ring exhibits high conformational mobility in all of these compounds. The change in the energy occurring in the transition of the molecule to the boat conformation with an angle between the planar fragments of ±20° does not exceed 1 kcal mol−1. The mobility of the dihydro ring increases as interactions between the π-systems of the azole ring and the C=C double bond separated by an imino group and a methylene bridge decrease.
