Reaction of 1-(benzothiazol-2-yl)-2-phenylsulfonyl-1-ethanone (1) and 1-(1-methyl-1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)-2-(phenylsulfonyl)-1-ethanone (2) with phenyl isothiocyanate afforded the corresponding potassium salts 3 and 4, respectively. The potassium salts 3 and 4 were converted into the corresponding (Z)-1-(benzothiazol-2-yl)-3-mercapto-3-(phenylamino)-2-(phenylsulfonyl) propenone (5) and (Z)-1-(1-methylbenzimidazole-2-yl)-3-mercapto-3-(phenylamino)-2-(phenylsulfonyl)propenone (6), respectively upon acidification with HCl. The latter products were used as versatile building blocks for novel 1,3,4-thiadiazole derivatives via their reactions with the appropriate hydrazonyl halides. They have been also utilized for the synthesis of thiazole ring systems incorporating phenylsulfonyl moiety.
