Reactions of 2-cyano-1-methyl-4-phenyl-1-thianaphthalene (1) with electrophiles, such as tetracyanoethylene, maleic anhydride, and 4-phenyl-1-thianaphthylium perchlorate gave the dimeric compound (II) of 1, but not any cycloaddition products. However, the treatment of 1 and dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate afforded a new ring expansion product (III) having sulphur-containing nine-membered ring.
