Treatment of various 2-amino-arylalkyl alcohols with isothiocyanates afforded thiourea intermediates, which were reacted in situ with molecular iodine in the presence of triethylamine to give 2-amino-4H-1,3-benzoxazines. The reaction of the thiourea intermediates with T3P as mild cyclodehydrating reagent and triethylamine as the base provides 2-amino-4H-1,3-benzothiazines.

A thiolate anion promotes a transition-metal free cleavage of two carbon-sulfur bonds in 2,2′-bis(methylthio)-1,1′-biaryl derivatives. The subsequent dibenzothiophene-forming cyclization step proceeds through a concerted nucleophilic aromatic substitution (CSNAr) mechanism.

An isothiourea-catalyzed enantioselective formal [4+3] cycloaddition of various α,β-unsaturated carboxylic acid derivatives with 2-aminothiophenols proceeds via a reversible sulfa-Michael addition to α,β-unsaturated acylammonium intermediates, followed by an enantioselective formation of a seven-membered ring.
