The thioenols derived from cyanomonothiocarbonylmalonamides and a cyanodithiocarbonylmalonamide were found to be very reactive species. They react under a variety of conditions such as crystallization, reaction with several carbonyl compounds, and reactions with another thioenol molecule to give a variety of products, mostly heterocycles, including substituted 2,3-dihydroisothiazole-3-ones and 3-thione, 2-substituted methylenethiazoles, 3,4-dihydro-1,3-thiazine-4-ones and 4-thiones, divinyl sulfides, a 1,2-dithiolane radical, and a 3,7-diaza[3.3.0]bicyclooctane derivative. Mechanisms suggested for these reactions include radical mechanisms, nucleophilic substitutions, and condensations.
