Abstract

2-Phenylthiazolin-5-one (2b) was generated in situ and condensed with various aldehydes in CH2Cl2 (r.t./20 min.), to obtain the corresponding 4-alkylidene or arylidene products in good yields (68-81%). The reaction is catalyzed by basic lead acetate, and is equally successful with both aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes. This mild version of the classical Erlenmeyer azlactone synthesis is apparently enabled by the enhanced aromaticity of the thioazlactone anion intermediate.
