The Hinsberg thiophene synthesis using 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-4,7-ethanothiophene-5,6-dione and diethyl thiodiglycolate afforded a mixture of diethyl 4,8-dihydro-4,8-ethanobenzo[1,2-c;4,5-c’]dithiophene-1,3-dicarboxylate and its dihydrate, although the yields were low. The latter dihydrate was converted to the former dithiophene in a good yield by the treatment with Ac2O and DMAP.
