Monocyclic, acceptor-substituted N-aroylisothiazolium-2-imines (5a-d), easily available by cyclocondensation of 2-methyl-3-thiocyanato-2-butenal with aryl hydrazides, are described and the structure of new five-membered azomethine imines (5) is determined by X-Ray structure of 5a. The oxidation of 2-imines (5) with hydrogen peroxide in acetic acid gives 3-hydroperoxysultims (rac-cis 6) , -sultams (7), and 3-oxosultams (10). The 3-hydroxysultams (8a-d) are obtained by reduction of hydroperoxides (7). Surprisingly, after the dehydration of 8a-h and its 1,5-electrocyclization, a new type of heteropentalenes, the isothiazolo[3,2-b]-1,3,4-oxadiazole-5,5-dioxides (11) is formed.
