Synthesis of Novel 5-Aryl/Hetarylidenyl 3-(2-Methyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobenzo[4,5]thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidin-4-yl)-2-thioxothiazolidin-4-ones

The synthesis of a variety of novel 5-substituted titled compounds containing a priviledged rhodanine scaffold is described. The synthesis involves a microwave (MW) assisted Knoevenagel condensation of 3-(2-methyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobenzo[4,5]thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidin-4-yl)-2-thioxothiazolidin-4-one with suitably substituted aromatic aldehydes. However, these condensations fail with aliphatic aldehydes. The 2-thioxothiazolidin-4-one (rhodanine) precursor was prepared by the condensation of 2-thioxothiazolidin-4-one-di-(carboxymethyl)trithiocarbonyl and 4,5,6,7-tetrahydrobenzo[4,5]thienyl[2,3-d]- 2-methylpyrimidin-4-amine in the presence of K2CO3.
