The base-catalysed ring closure of 2,6-dinitrophenylsulfanyl-ethanenitrile and 2,4,6-trinitrophenylsulfanylethanenitrile gives 2-cyano-7-nitrobenzo[d]thiazole-3-oxide and 2-cyano-5,7-dinitrobenzo[d]thiazole-3-oxide, respectively. Structure of the starting phenylsulfanyl-ethanenitriles has been studied both in crystal and in solution.
