The reaction of 3-amino-1,2,4-oxadiazoles 6a,b, 3-aminoisoxazole 9 and 3-amino-1,2,5-oxadiazoles 12a,b with ethoxycarbonyl isothiocyanate has been investigated. In the case of 6a,b, the reaction directly gave the 1,2,4-thiadiazoles 8a,b, because of a spontaneous rearrangement of the initially formed thioureas 7a,b. In the case of 9 and 12a,b, the reaction allowed to isolate the corresponding thioureas which were easily rearranged into 1,2,4-thiadiazoles.
