Ring transformation reactions of 6-imino-6H-1,3-thiazines (4), 6-imino-6H-1,3-thiazine hydroperchlorates (3), respectively, are initiated under basic conditions by a ring opening of the thiazine nucleous. Two possibilities exist, either intramolecular elimination occurs to give acrylonitriles (5), or addition of a nucleophile (YH) results in the formation of substituted acrylthioamides (6). The way by which stable products were formed depends on both the functionality of the thiazine, and the reaction conditions. The way 45 produce 1,3-benzoxazines (8), or 1,2,4-dithiazoles (14), respectively. The way 46 gives pyrimidinethiones (7), or 1,2-dithioles (17), respectively. Upon treatment of thiazine perchlorates (3) with alkylhalides under basic conditions, acrylonitriles (18) are formed by the way 45. Compounds (18) can be transformed to 1,2,4-triazoles (19).
