Under phase transfer catalysis conditions, 6‐amino‐4‐phenyl‐2‐thioxo‐1,2‐dihydropyridine‐3,5‐dicarbonitrile (1) was allowed to react with halo compounds, acrylonitrile, chloroacetyl chloride, ethyl cyanoacetate, formamide, triethylorthoformate, or formic acid to give new derivatives of fused pyridines 2–22, respectively. Acetylation of compound 1 using acetic anhydride afforded product 23, which in turn underwent intramolecular cyclization in pyridine to give the corresponding pyrido[2,3‐d]pyrimidine 24.
