|Title:||1-(Pyridinyl)-2-(dimethylamino)ethenyl lower-alkyl ketones|
|Abstract:||1-R.sub.1 -3-[amino, cyano, carbamyl, halo, lower-alkylamino, di-(lower-alkyl)amino or lower-acylamino]-6-(lower-alkyl)-5-(pyridinyl)-2(1H)-pyridinones or pharmaceutically-acceptable acid-addition or cationic salts thereof are useful as cardiotonic agents, where R.sub.1 is hydrogen, lower-alkyl or lower-hydroxyalkyl. 1-R.sub.1 -3-amino-6-(lower-alkyl)-5-(pyridinyl)-2(1H)-pyridinones are prepared by hydrolyzing the corresponding 3-cyano compounds to produce the corresponding 3-carbamyl compounds and reacting the latter with a reagent capable of converting carbamyl to amino. The 1-R.sub.1 -3-cyano-6-(lower-alkyl)-5-(pyridinyl)-2(1H)-pyridinones are prepared by reacting (pyridinylmethyl) lower-alkyl ketones with dimethylformamide di-(lower-alkyl) acetal to produce 1-(pyridinyl)-2-(dimethylamino)ethenyl lower-alkyl ketone and reacting said ketones with N-R.sub.1 -o-cyanoacetamide to produce the 1-R.sub.1 -3-cyano-6-(lower-alkyl)-5-(pyridinyl)-2(1H)-pyridinones. Also shown are the conversions: of the 3-cyano compounds to the 3-H compounds; of the 3-H compounds to the 3-halo compounds; of the 3-halo compounds to the 3-[mono-(lower-alkyl)- or di-(lower-alkyl)amino] compounds; and, of the 3-amino compounds to the 3-lower-acylamino or 3-[mono-(lower-alkyl)- or di-(lower-alkyl)amino] compounds.|
