The reaction of 4-hydrazino-8-(trifluoromethyl)quinoline (2) with ethoxymethylenecyanoacetate afforded ethyl 5-amino-1-[8-(trifluoromethyl) quinolin-4-yl]-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxylate (3) and that with ethoxymethylenemalononitrile afforded 5-amino-1-[8-(trifluoromethyl)quinolin-4- yl]-1H-pyrazole-4-carbonitrile (5). Compounds 3 and 5 were hydrolyzed to get 5-amino-1-[8-(trifluoromethyl)quinolin-4-yl]-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxylic acid and then reacted with acetic anhydride to afford 6-methyl-1-[8-(trifluoromethyl) quinolin-4-yl]pyrazolo[3,4-d]oxazin-4-one (6), which was condensed with different aromatic amines to give a series of 5-substituted 6-methyl-1-[8- (trifluoromethyl)quinolin-4-yl]-1,5-dihydro-4H-pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-ones (7). Compounds 3 and 5 also reacted with formamide, urea, and thiourea affording the corresponding pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidines (8-13), respectively. Structures of the products have been determined by chemical reactions and spectral studies. All compounds of the series have been screened for their antibacterial and antifungal activity studies. The results are summarized in Tables 1 and 2.
