Model tetrahydropyrido[3',2':4,5]thieno[2,3-b][1,4]thiazines 9a-c were synthesized via reductive lactamization, using sodium dithionite, of the respective 2-[(carboxyalkyl)thio]-3-nitro-4,7-dihydrothieno[2,3-b]pyridine-5-carboxylic acids 7a-c. The latter derivatives were made via interaction of 2-chloro-7-cyclopropyl-3-nitro-4,7-dihydrothieno[2,3-b]pyridine-5-carboxylic acid (6) with each of α–mercaptoacetic, α-mercaptopropionic, and α-mercaptosuccinic acids and triethylamine in aqueous acetone at room temperature. The structures of 7a-7c and 9a-9c are supported by microanalytical and spectral (IR, MS, NMR) data. Compounds 9a and 9c showed potent inhibitory activity against the IGROV1 (Ovarian Cancer) cell line.
