2,4,5-Trichloro- (2a) and 2,4-dichloro-5-methoxypyridazin-3(2H)-one (2b) are novel electrophilic chlorinating agents. α-Chlorination of active methylene/methine compounds with 2 in the presence of either Lewis or protonic acids in dichloromethane (for Lewis acid) or water (for protonic acid or none) at room temperature gave also selectively α-monochlorides and/or α,α-dichlorides in good to excellent yields.
