In contrast to 2-pyridone, pyridine-2-thione reacts with acetylene with the participation of one reaction center — the sulfur atom. The reaction with phenylacetylene and diacetylene proceeds stereospecifically to give products with cis structures. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by chemical and spectroscopic methods.
