- A concise and efficient method for the synthesis of α-methylene-γ-lactams is developed from multicomponent one-pot reactions of aldehydes or ketones, hydrazides, and ethyl 2-(bromomethyl)acrylate promoted by tin powder. The reaction proceeds smoothly under mild reaction conditions without using any catalyst to give the corresponding products in high yields. α-Methylene-γ-spirolactams can also be prepared from cyclic ketones.
