Cycloaddition reactions of diphenylketene (I) with N-pyridin-2-yl-S,S-dimethylsulfilimine (II), N-benzoxazol-2-yl-S,S-dimethylsulfilimine (IV), and N-benzthiazol-2-yl-S,S-dimethylsulfilimine (VI) were investigated. I reacted with II, IV, and VI giving cycloadducts, 2,3-dihydro-3-keto-2,2-diphenylimidazo[1,2-a]pyridine (IIIa), 2,3-dihydro-3-keto-2,2-diphenylimidazo[2,1-b]benzoxazole (V), and 2,3-dihydro-3-keto-2,2-diphenylimidazo[2,1-b]benzthiazole (VII) by accompanying an elimination of dimethyl sulfide, respectively.
On the other hand, N-benzimidoyl-S,S-dimethylsulfilimine (VIII), contrary to our expectation, was not cyclized, but gave a Michael type adduct (IX).
