Abstract: Novel 3-acetyl-2-aminothiophenes were prepared from cyanoacetone and1,4-dithianyl-2,5-diols using a modified Gewald reaction. The syntheses of thecorresponding acetamides, as well as that of 3-acetyl-2-amino-5-nitrothiophene – aninteresting building-block for thiophene azo dyes – are reported. Detailed spectroscopicinvestigations (1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, MS, IR) of the obtained compounds are presented.
Keywords: Gewald reaction; Thiophene synthesis; Cyclization; Condensation.
