An easy preparation of enaminonitrile derivatives, obtained by using a mixture of triethyl orthoformate and piperidine in DMF solution, and their transformation into new substituted azolopyrimidines is described. The one-step transformation was carried out under microwave irradiation and by classical heating methods. The use of microwave irradiation led to high conversion and shorter reaction times.
