The reaction of tosylated 2-alkoxypyrazines with potassium halides led to the unexpected formation of N-alkylated pyrazinones. Such rare example of substitutive C–O → C–N rearrangement on pyrazines was then scrutinised by using various nucleophiles to afford the respective products in moderate to good yields. This method provides a direct access to N-alkylated-1H-pyrazin-2-ones. The formation of the rearranged products is conveniently and reliably determined by characteristic NMR shifts ofdoi:10.1055/s-0039-1690222 fatcat:eh6rypwsvffypg4dmmwms2vzli
