The ring opening of 2-acylamino-4,5-dihydro-3-furanocarbonitriles (1a-f) with titanium (IV) chloride gave the corresponding N-acyl-4-chloro-2-cyanobutanamides (2a-f). On treatment with potassium carbonate, compounds (2a-f) were converted to the corresponding N-acyl-1-cyanocyclopropanecarboxamides (3a-f). On the other hand, the reaction of 2-benzamido-4,5-dihydro-3-thiophenecarbonitriles (4a-c) with titanium (IV) chloride gave the corresponding 2-benzamido-4,5-dihydro-3-thiophenecarboxamides (5a-c).
