Dibenzo[d,f]-1,2-selena and -1,2-thiazepin-3-ones derivatives were prepared from the corresponding 2-alkylselanyl- and 2-alkylsulfanylbiphenyl-2’-carboxamides or their diselenide or disulfide derivatives. These new seven-membered seleno-compounds are homologues of Ebselen (PZ51) (1) which exhibits glutathion peroxidase activity. Bis-homologues of PZ25 (2) were also synthesized. Synthesis of benzo[c]selenocoumarin via a directed ortho metalationbolonic acid cross-coupling reaction and it’s ring-opening reaction are the first step of the synthetic pathway.
