Secondary 2-(vinyl)thiobenzamide derivatives, easily prepared by reacting 2-lithiostyrene derivatives with various isothiocyanates, undergo intramolecular cyclization on treatment with concentrated hydriodic acid to produce 1(3H)-iminobenzo[c]thiophene derivatives in fair-to-good yields. Some of them have been hydrolyzed under acidic conditions to afford benzo[c]thiophen-1(3H)-one derivatives in good yields.
