2-Aryl-3,3-dimethylbenzothiazolinium tetrafluoroborate (1) suffers nucleophilic attack at the ring sulfur atom by butyllithium to afford the ring-opened ammonium ylide (A), which collapses to the radical pair (B) to give unusual Stevens rearrangement product (2) as a major product, where the o-alkylthiophenyl group migrated selectively in preference to the methyl group.
