A new and efficient method for the preparation of 3,4-dihydro-2H-1-benzothiopyran 1,1-dioxide derivatives has been developed. α-Substituted o-(methylsulfonyl)styrenes, which can be derived from α-substituted o-bromostyrenes by an easily operated two-step sequence, are cyclized on treatment with lithium diisopropylamide (LDA) to give, after aqueous workup, the corresponding 4-monosubstituted 3,4-dihydro-2H-1-benzothiopyran 1,1-dioxides. Addition of electrophiles prior to aqueous workup provides 4,4-disubstituted derivatives.
