An efficient method is proposed for the preparation of substituted thieno[2,3-b:4,5-b’]dipyridines (2a-h, 3a-g, and 5a-e), based on the Friedländer synthesis of 3-amino-5-cyano-7-ethoxy-2-formyl-4-phenylthieno[2,3-b]pyridine (1) with acyclic, cyclic, heterocyclic and α,β-unsaturated ketones. In addition, the reaction of 1 with guanidine sulfate yielded the fused triheterocyclic pyrido[3’,2’:4,5]thieno[3,2-d]pyrimidine system (6).
