Reaction of 2-(1-adamantylsulfanyl)-3,6-dihalobenzaldehydes with Ohira-Bestmann reagent gave 4,7-dihalobenzo[b]thiophenes along with normal alkyne products. Nine types of 4,7-dihalobenzo[b]thiophenes bearing chlorine, bromine, or iodine atoms, were prepared by this method. Regioselectivity in Suzuki-Miyaura cross coupling reactions of the 4,7-dihalobenzo[b]thiophenes with PhB(OH)2 was also studied.
