3,3′-Dimethyl-1,1′-divinyl-2,2′-dipyrrole was obtained during the reaction of 3,4-hexanedione dioximes with acetylene under pressure in the potassium hydroxide-DMSO system. In the case of 1,2-cyclohexanedione dioxime 2,2′-dipyrrole and 2-pyridyl-and 2-acylpyrroles were isolated. α-Benzil and α-furil dioximes give 3,4-diphenyl-and 3,4-di(2-furyl)-1,2,5-oxadiazoles respectively in addition to their mono-and divinyl derivatives.
