2-Pyridothiones (IV) are obtained from the reaction of α-benzoylcinnamonitriles (I) with cyanothioacetamide (II). Disulphides V result as well from the reaction. Transformation of IV into V and of V into IV, as well as methylation of IV and their hydrolytic conversion into pyridones VI are also described. Pyridones VI can also be obtained from methylthiopyridines VIII.
