Abstract: An unexpected azeto[2,3-c]quinolizinedione has been isolated during synthetic studies on the base catalyzed condensation of ethyl 6-methylpyridin-2(1H)-on-1-ylacetate with benzil. Closure of a fused four-membered azetidinone ring occurred when potassium hexamethyldisilazide was employed as the base. The structure of the product was confirmed by synchrotron X-ray crystallography. A possible mechanism for the formation of the product is considered.
