The first time the representative of furan-containing gem-bromonitroethenes 5-nitro-2-(2-bromo-2-nitro-ethenyl)furan was synthesized by bromination of 5-nitro-2-(2-nitroethenyl)furan followed by dehydrohalogenation of the dibromide. Morpholine adducts of the synthesized β-substituted gem-bromonitroethene and its analog with a 5-bromo-2-furyl substituent were obtained. The structures of the gem-bromonitroethenes and aza adducts were characterized by spectral methods (IR, UV, 1H, and 13C-{1H} NMR, including 1H-13C HMQC and HMBC).
