© 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.1-Aminopyrimidine-2-one derivatives (1a-c) were prepared in two steps from furan-2,3-diones and semicarbazones in toluene/benzene. Pyrimidin-[1(2H)-yl] acetamide derivatives and isophthalimide derivatives were synthesized from the nucleophilic acyl substitution reactions of compounds 1a-c with chloroacetyl chloride. The structures of compounds 2a-f were verified by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and elemental analyses. The obtained final organic compounds were tested as catalysts in the Mizoroki-Heck coupling reaction. They mostly exhibited very high catalytic activity results for the coupling reaction of styrene with different aryl bromide derivatives.
