An efficient one-pot method for the preparation of 2,3-disubstituted 3-hydroxy-2,3-dihydro-1H-isoindole-1-thiones from secondary benzothioamides and carboxylic esters has been developed. Thus, the reaction of the starting thioamides with two equivalents of butyllithium generates the corresponding 2,N-dilithiobenzothioamides, which are then allowed to react with carboxylic esters to give the desired products. The similar preparation of 4- and 5-aza-analogues from 2(or 3)-bromopyridine-3(or 4)-carbothioamides, respectively, is also described.
