Photo-oxidation of mesoionic 1,3-dithiolium-4-olates (1) gave diacyl disulfide (2), and that of a mesoionic thiazolium-4-olate (6) and oxazolium-5-olate (9) gave diacylamides as the main products. The formation of these products was rationalized by a route involving fragmentation of the corresponding endoperoxides, which are formed by cycloaddition of singlet oxygen on the mesoionic rings. Photo-oxidation of 5(4H)-oxazolones (12) and a 5(4H)-thiazolone (17) in dichloromethane gave the corresponding dehydro-dimers, while that of the former in dimethylformamide gave mainly diacylamides. The acylamides were considered to arise via the endoperoxides of the mesoionic tautomers.
