The reactions of 5,12-dialkylthioquinantrenediinium bis-salts (1) with 3-aminopyridine yield 1-alkyl-4-(3-pyridinylamino)quinolinium-3-thiolates (2). In the presence of oxygen and hydrogen chloride, the compounds (2) undergo cyclization to 1,4-thiazine derivatives having the structure of 5-alkyl-12(H)-pyrido[2,3-e]quino[3,4-b][1,4]thiazinium salts (4). The structure of 3-thiolates (2) was analyzed using 1H NMR (NOE) and 15N NMR spectral methods. The structure of compound (4) was confirmed by X-Ray analysis.
