The first examples of C(6)-substituted 7-hydroxy-6,7-dihydro-5H-imidazo[1,2-b][1,2,4]triazines have been prepared by ring closure of different 5(2H)-1,2,4-triazin-3-ones 1a−c with 40% aqueous glyoxal and various nucleophiles (alcohols, thiols, or amines). The structure and exact stereochemistry of 2a was established by a single X-ray diffraction study and 1H and 13C NMR spectra analysis. The process was shown to be totally regio- and diastereoselective. A mechanism involving an imine intermediate was proposed.
