Photolysis of N-methylmonothiophthalimide (1) in the presence of thletane (4) gave 1,2-dithiane (5) and 1,3-dithiane (6) . The formation of 1,2-dithianes in the photoreaction of 1 with styrene derivatives (2) is explained in terms of the
intermediacy of the phthalimide-thietanes. Photolysis of the thietane ring is also described.
