The reaction of sulfur, carbon disulfide, and enamines at room temperature leads mainly or exclusively to 3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thiones; these are occasionally accompanied by 2H-1,3-dithiole-2-thiones, which can also be prepared by a modified procedure. Many enamines react with sulfur at room temperature to form thioamides. At about 50°C, enamines of acetophenone give 2-benzylidene-4-phenyl-2H-1,3-dithiol. The action of isothiocyanates and sulfur on enamines leads to the formation of thiazolidine-2-thiones. 2H-Thiopyran-2-thiones can be prepaAred from enamines or dienamines with carbon disulfide at room temperature. The reaction of ketimines (Schiff bases) with carbon disulfide and sulfur yields 3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thiones or isothiazoline-5-thiones. The reaction of alkynes with sulfur and carbon disulfide leads to 2H-1,3-dithiole-2-thiones. Nitriles containing active methylene groups react with carbon disulfide and sulfur to form 5-amino-3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thiones. When isothiocyanates are used instead of CS2, the reaction leads to δ4-4-amino-thiazoline-2-thiones.
