Synthesis of 1,2,4-thiadiazoles

An electro-oxidative intramolecular dehydrogenative N-S bond formation of imidoyl thioureas provides a broad range of 3-substituted 5-amino-1,2,4-thiadiazoles derivatives in good to excellent yields with excellent functional group tolerance under catalyst- and oxidant-free conditions at room temperature.

I2-mediated oxidative C-N and N-S bond formations in water enable a metal-free, environmentally benign and convenient strategy for the synthesis of 4,5-disubstituted/N-fused 3-amino-1,2,4-triazoles and 3-substituted 5-amino-1,2,4-thiadiazoles from isothiocyanates. The scalable protocols exhibited excellent substrate tolerance.

An intramolecular oxidative S-N bond formation of imidoyl thioureas mediated by phenyliodine(III) bis(trifluoroacetate) enables an efficient, metal-free synthesis of 3-substituted-5-arylamino-1,2,4-thiadiazoles. The protocol offers broad substrate scope, very short reaction times and very good yields.
