An efficient reaction of carbon disulfide with oxiranes in the presence of sodium hydride (10 mol%) and methanol gives functionalized 1,3­oxathiolane-2-thiones in very good yields.

A highly efficient and stereoselective gold-catalyzed cycloisomerization of α-thioallenes to 2,5-dihydrothiophenes has been discovered.

A rhodium-catalyzed transannulation of 1,2,3-thiadiazoles with aliphatic, aromatic, and heteroaromatic alkenes enables a regioselective synthesis of a wide range of dihydrothiophenes. A subsequent addition of 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone (DDQ) provides thiophenes. The present method offers broad substrate scope, wide functional group compatibility, and high regioselectivity.

With CuI as the catalyst and K3PO4 • 3 H2O as the base, a highly efficient, ligand-free intramolecular S-vinylation of thiols with vinyl chlorides or bromides was successfully implemented. Moreover, competition experiments revealed that the 4-exo cyclization is fundamentally preferred over other modes (5-exo, 6-exo, and 6-endo) of cyclization.

The reaction of 3-sulfolene with arylboronic acids in the presence of a chiral diene-rhodium catalyst under highly basic conditions gave high yields of 3-arylsulfolanes with high enantioselectivity via a base-catalyzed isomerization to the more reactive 2-sulfolene.

A facile and practical TBAI-catalyzed reaction between N-tosyl hydrazones and sulfur provides 1,2,3-thiadiazoles in good yields under metal-free conditions. This procedure serves as an improvement for the Hurd-Mori reaction.

A three-component condensation gave 2-amino-4H-1,3-oxazines or 2-amino-4H-1,3-thiazines from alkynes, urea or thiourea, and aldehydes.
