Synthesis of some 2-ylidene-1,3-dithiolanes


Convenient procedures have been developed for the synthesis of 2-(1,3-dithiolan-2-ylidene)- malononitriles and 2-cyano-2-(1,3-dithiolan-2-ylidene)acetamides from disodium alk-1-ene-1,1-dithiolates and 1,2-dichloroalkanes, as well as from malononitrile or cyanoacetamide in a one-pot mode.
