The considerable interest in benzopyrano[2,3-b]pyridines is connected with the occurrence among them of compounds possessing antihistamine [1], anticaner [2], antibacterial [3], hypotensive [4], antiasthmatic [5], and other classes of activity [6, 7]. As a result a considerable attention is paid in the recent time to development of new methods to obtain substances of this class [7, 8, 9, 10].

We have shown that the reaction of the Mannich bases 1a,b with 2 equivalents of malononitrile in DMF at 120°C led to the formation of 12 H-benzo[5,6]chromeno[2,3- b]pyridines 2a,b with yields of 83 and 68%, respectively.
