An efficient synthesis of perfunctionalized 3-amino-4-nitrothiophenes was developed starting from highly chlorinated 2-nitrobutadiene derivatives. The key step of this new approach is the cyclization reaction of highly nucleophilic, ω-chlorinated butadienyl thiolates generated from 2-(2-diorganylamino-3,3-dichloro-1-nitroallylidene)-[1,3]dithiolanes upon action of base.
