Purinyl(theophyllinyl)-8-mercapto aldehydes and their acetals were synthesized by the reaction of 8-thio derivatives of purine and theophylline with α-halo aldehydes and their acetals. The IR spectra demonstrated that the indicated aldehydes exist in the solid state as tautomeric forms — 3-hydroxy derivatives of thiazolino[2,3-f]purines(xanthines). Dehydration of the latter gave thiazolo[2,3-f]purine, 6,8-dimethylthiazolo[2,3-f]xanthine, and their 2-alkyl-substituted derivatives. The structures of the three-ring compounds were established by reductive desulfuration to 7-alkyl-substituted purines and theophyllines.
