Abstract By potential-controlled electrochemical reduction, 2-hydroxyamino-1-pentafluorophenylethanol has been converted in the presence of nitrous acid into 1-hydrazino-2-pentafluorophenylethanol, which on heating in dimethylformamide forms 1-amino-4, 5, 6, 7-tetrafluoroindole or 1-amino-4, 5, 6, 7-tetrafluoro-3-hydroxyin hydroxyindoline, depending on the conditions. On being heated with hydrochloric acid, both cyclization products are converted into 5, 6, 7, 8-tetrafluoro-1, 4-dihydrocinnoline, which has been oxidized to 5, 6, 7, 8-tetrafluorocinnoline.
