A new and efficient method for the synthesis of 2,3-dihydrobenzo[b]thiophen-3-amine 1,1-dioxide derivatives has been developed. Thus, treatment of o-(alkylsulfonyl)benzyl azides, which are readily obtainable from commercially available starting materials by easily operational sequences, with lithium diisopropylamide (LDA) in THF at –78 ˚C gives, after aqueous workup, 2,3-dihydrobenzo[b]thiophen-3-amine 1,1-dioxides. These products can be isolated in moderate to fair yields after N-protection with acylating agents.
