The reactivity of 3-amino-2,4-dicyano-methyl-(1d) and-ethyl-crotonate (1e), resp., a new type of codimer from malononitrile and cyanoacetate, was investigated. Condensation reactions with aromatic aldehydes (2a-g), with heterocyclic aldehydes (2j-l), nitrosobenzenes (3a-c) ando-hydroxybenz-and-naphtaldehydes (4a-f), resp., are described, the differences in reactivity, compared with dimer malononitrile and dimeric forms of cyanoacetate (1a-c) are negligible. Condensation compounds of1a with cycloalkanones (5a-c) are able to cyclise with sulfur to cycloalkanonothieno-pyridines (6a-b), while the cycloalkano-derivatives of1d gave no ring closure.
