The reaction of N-alkyl-2,N-dilithiobenzothioamides, generated by treating N-alkylbenzothioamides with two equivalents of butyllithium, with aldehydes gives the corresponding 2-(1-hydroxyalkyl)benzothioamides, which undergo cyclization on treatment with methanesulfonyl chloride in the presence of triethylamine to yield 3,N-disubstituted (Z)-benzo[c]thiophen-1(3H)-imines. 2,3-Disubstituted 2,3-dihydro-1H-isoindole-1-thiones are obtained by the reaction of the above hydroxy thioamides with two equivalents of sodium hydride followed by an equivalent of phenyl chloroformate.
