New Thiocarbonyl Ylides from Thiobenzophenone

Thiobenzophenone is converted to 1,3,4-thiadiazolines by reaction with diazoethane, phenyldiazomethane or diphenyldiazomethane at -78 °C. Extrusion of nitrogen from the thiadiazolines furnishes thiocarbonyl ylides which, in turn, undergo electrocyclic ring closure to form thiiranes. Thiobenzophenone S-ethylide and S-benzylide can be intercepted by suitable dipolarophiles to provide 5-membered 1,3-cycloadducts.
