Several iso-π-electronic thia-heteroanalogues of heptafulvalene were synthesized by Wittig-Horner reaction of the corresponding tropones with 2-diethoxyphosphinyl-1,3-benzodithiole. Some of them reacted with π-acceptors such as TCNQ or DDQ in hot MeCN to give new stable charge transfer complexes.

Reaction of N4S4 with 1-aryl-1-trimethylsilyloxyethylenes (1a-1e) gave 3-hydroxy-4-aryl-1,2,5-thiadiazoles (2a-2e) though the yields were low. 3-Amino-4-thienyl-1,2,5-thiadiazole (3) was obtained as a minor product.

Forty Years of Tryptofun

Bernhard Witkop

*National Institute of Health, 9000 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20892-0815, U.S.A.


Almost every atom in free or bound tryptophan is capable of reacting selectively under appropriate conditions, both in vitro as well as in vivo. An organic chemist’s approach to this challenging problem in differential and selective reactivity, covering a span of more than forty years, is presented with due emphasis on the historical contributions from Japan before and during the NIH Visiting Program, started more than a quarter century ago.
