Three-component reactions of enaminoesters, fluorodibromoiamides/ester, and sulfur provide thiazoles and isothiazoles via two C-F bond cleavages along with the formation of new C-S, C-N, and N-S bonds. Both methods offer high selectivity for the synthesis of thiazoles/isothiazoles, which have vital applications in drug discovery and development.
