*Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, T6G 2G2, Canada


Aryl mercaptans, unlike heterocyclic mercaptans, reacted exceptionally slowly with penicillin sulfoxides. These reactions are affected by the substituent at the C-6 position of the penam, and by the nature of the ester group at the C-3 position. The unsym-azetidinone disulfides obtained from these reactions, unlike those from heterocyclic mercaptans, did not react with halogenating agents such as cupric chloride.

The synthesis of derivatives of a new tricyclic heteroaromatic ring, 1H,4H,6H-pyrazolo[3,4-e]pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]oxazepine, is described. Formylation of 4-ethoxycarbonyl-1-phenyl-5-(1-pyrryl)pyrazole, prepared from 5-amino-4-ethoxycarbonyl-1-phenylpyrazole by Clauson-Kaas method, afforded 4-ethoxycarbonyl-5-(2-formyl-1-pyrryl)-1-phenylpyrazole, which was then reduced to 4-hydroxymethyl-5-(2-hydroxymethyl-1-pyrryl)-1-phenylpyrazole. Treatment of the diol with phosphorus pentoxide led to 1-phenyl-1H,4H,6H-pyrazolo[3,4-e]pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]oxazepine. 4-Methyl and 4-phenyl derivatives of the latter compound were also prepared.
