A copper-promoted 6-endo-trig cyclization of readily available β,γ-unsaturated hydrazones enables an efficient synthesis of a series of 1,6-dihydropyridazines with good yields, high functional group tolerance, and remarkable regioselectivity under mild conditions. Importantly, the 1,6-dihydropyridazines can be efficiently converted to biologically important pyridazines in the presence of NaOH.
