2,4-Pyrrolidinedione derivatives were synthesized in 67-85% yield in one-pot reaction via base-catalyzed cyclization of α-(arylvinylcarbonyl)-α’-(N-arylaminocarbonyl)ketene dithioacetals formed in situ by the reaction of α-acetyl-α’-(N-arylaminocarbonyl)ketene dithioacetals with pyridinecarboxlaldehydes or benzaldehydes containing electron-withdrawing substituents.
