4,5-Dicyanopyridazine (DCP) shows unexpected reactivity with dienophiles via Hetero Diels-Alder. Reactions involving this compound and alkynes or enamines was already described, open possibilities to synthesize precursors for important macromolecules, like phthalonitriles used in phthalocyanines synthesis. Herein, we present a microwave synthetic step in the DCP synthetic route in order to minimize the time to synthesize this compound.
