The sulfurization of β-dithiolactone gave 1,2-dithiolane-3-thione via an ionic intermediate. The reaction of 1,2-dithiolane-3-thione with acetylenedicarboxylate esters gave the corresponding spirocyclic 1,3-dithioles in good yields, whereas the reaction of 5-methyl-1,2-dithiole-3-thione with DMAD afforded a 1:2 cycloadduct in 78% yield.
