An alternative way of synthesis consists of making flucytosine from a precursor of fluorouracil—5-fluoro-2-methylthiouracil (30.1.3.2) using a somewhat analogous scheme. Treating 5-fluoro-2-methylthiouracil (30.1.3.2) with phosphorous pentachloride gives 4-chloro-5-fluoro-2-methylthiopyrimidine (35.4.5), which upon being reacted with ammonium is transformed into 4-amino-5-fluoro-2-methylthiopyrimidine (35.4.6). Hydrolysis of the methylthiovinyl fragment using concentrated hydrobromic acid gives the desired flucytosine [56-58].
