Acylation of 2-aminothiobenzamide or 2-methylaminothiobenzamide with substituted benzoyl chlorides has been used to synthesise the corresponding 2-benzoylaminothiobenzamides whose subsequent sodium methoxide-catalysed ring closure gives the corresponding quinazoline-4-thiones. These compounds were characterised by means of their 1H- and 13C-NMR spectra. The preferred tautomeric form of selected compounds has been discussed on the basis of their 13C-NMR, IR and Raman spectra. It has been found that in the given medium 1-methyl-quinazoline-4-thiones undergo a replacement of the sulphur substituent by oxygen giving 1-methyl-quinazoline-4-ones. In strong acid media, 2-benzoylaminothiobenzamide is cyclised through its sulphur atom to give 2-phenylbenzo[d-1,3]thiazin-4-one.
