Synthesis of derivatives of 2-acylamino-7-oxybenzo[b]thiophene. Bromination and nitration


Bromination of 2-acylamino-3-ethoxycarbonyl-7-oxo-4,5,6,7-tetrahydrobenzo[b]-thiophenes has been studied. This reaction affords 2-acylamino-6,6-dibromo-3-ethoxycarbonyl-7-oxo-4,5,6,7-tetrahydrobenzo[b]thiophene, which on dehydrobro-mination gives 6-bromo-7-oxybenzo[b]thiophene derivatives. The 4,6-dibromo- and 4,6-dinitro-7-oxybenzo[b]thiophenes were also obtained.
