The action of sodium methanethiolate (in boiling DMF) on x,y-dichloroquinolines (1) (x=3 or 6, y=2 or 4) occured via chlorine ipso-substitution followed by methanethiolato-S-demethylation to yield x,y-quinolinedithiolates 2A which were: i) subjected to S-methylation, ii) oxidatively chlorinated to y-chloro-x-quinolinesulfonyl chlorides (5). Oxidative chlorination of y,y'-bis(x-chloroquinolinyl) disulfides (7) led to x-chloro-y-quinolinesulfonyl chlorides (8) accompanied by x,y-dichloroquinolines (1). Both quinolinesulfonyl chlorides 5 and 8 were efficiently converted to the corresponding quinolinesulfonamides 6 and 9.
