Cyclization of the 1,4-dithienyl-1,4-diketones (3) by acid catalyst furnished the α-thienylfurans, whereas condensation with ammonium acetate provided the α-thienylpyrroles. The 2,5-bis[4-(2-thienyl)-1,4-butanedionyl]thiophene (5) similarly gave the first syntheses of 2,5-bis[2-(5,2‘-thienyl)pyrryl]thiophene (12) and 2,5-bis[2-(5,2‘-thienyl)furyl]thiophene (13).
