2,2,4,4-Tetramethyl-3-thioxocyclobutanone S-methylide (2), generated from the 1,3,4-thiadiazoline 1 by N2 extrusion, combines with trans- and cis-1,2-dicyano-1,2-bis(trifluoromethyl)ethylene (7) furnishing nonstereospecifically five-membered thiolanes (8, 16) and a strained cyclic ketene imine in parallel reactions. The results of a mechanistic study are interpreted by zwitterionic intermediates.
