Thioxanthenium biscarbomethoxymethylide and its trans-9-methyl derivative were prepared by thermal reaction of the corresponding thioxanthenes with dimethyl diazomalonate in the presence of copper sulfate. These sulfonium ylides underwent base-catalyzed rearrangement to the corresponding 9-(biscarbomethoxymethyl)thioxanthenes.
