Article title

Aromatic glyoxalimines in criss-cross cycloaddition reactions


Title variants

Languages of publication



Aromatic 1,4-diazabuta-1,3-dienes in glacial acetic acid with thiocyanates produce via criss-cross cycloaddition reactions the corresponding perhydroimidazo[4,5-d]imidazole-2,5-dithiones. When a mixture of thiocyanate and cyanate in a proper ratio was reacted together, nonsymmetrical 5-thioxo-perhydroimidazo[4,5-d]imidazole-2-ones were isolated. With cyanates substituted aromatic 1,4-diazabuta-1,3-dienes afforded product of acetic acid addition to primary formed 1,3-dipole intermediate 5-(4-substituted phenylamino)-3-(4-substituted phenyl)-2-oxoimidazolidin-4-yl acetate.
