1,2-Diazetines (1) can be acylated with isocyanates (2) to give semicyclic urea derivatives (3). In contrast, isothiocyanates (4) react with 1 under mild conditions to furnish new derivatives of 1,3,4-thiadiazine (5). DFT calculations show that two different mechanistic pathways for this ring transformation are possible. N-Acylation is preferred at lower temperatures; whereas an electrocyclic ring opening/cycloaddition process is possible at higher temperatures.
