N-(2-Cyanophenyl)chloromethanimidoyl chloride (3) was prepared from 2-isothiocyanatobenzonitrile by the reaction with sulfuryl chloride or gaseous chlorine in an inert solvent. It was found that N-(2-cyanophenyl)chloromethanimidothioic chloride (2) and bis[N-(cyanophenyl)chloromethanimidoyl] sulfide (7) are intermediates of this reaction. The chloride 3 was obtained also by a three-component one-pot reaction of N-(2-cyanophenyl)-formamide in the present of thionyl chloride and sulfuryl chloride. (2-Cyanophenyl)-(1-{[(2-cyanophenyl)-imino]methoxy}methylidene)ammonium chloride (6) was detected as a by-product of this reaction. Identity of all reaction products was confirmed by GC-MS, FTIR, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. View Full-Text
