The 1,6-diaminopyridine-2-thiones (1a and 1b)react with α-halocarbonyl compounds to give the pyrido [2,1-b][1,3,4]thiadiaziniumsalts (2) which undergo base-catalyzed ring-contraction to give the pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyridines (3) or (4). The reactions of the N-aminoheterocycles (1a and 1b) with nitriles lead directly to [1,2,4] triazolo-[1,5-a]pyridines (5).
