Reaction of thiobenzophenone with 2,5-norbornadiene afforded an unusual seven-membered cyclic sulfide whereas 4,4’-dimethoxythiobenzophenone reacted with 2,5-norbornadiene to afford the corresponding quinone derivative via [4+2] type cycloaddition reaction. The mechanisms of these reactions are discussed.
