A series of 2-aryl-4,5-dihydro-1H-thieno[3,2-e]benzimidazoles (1, 2) was prepared by condensation of 5-acylamino-4,5,6,7-tetrahydrobenzo[b]thiophen-4-ones (9, 10) with ammonium acetate under azeotropic reaction conditions. Various congeners, N-methyl and N-phenyl analogues (3-5), 4,5-dihydro-1H-thieno[2,3-e]benzimidazoles (6), 4,5-dihydro-1H-thieno[2,3-g]benzoxazoles (7), and 4,5-dihydro-1H-thieno[2,3-g]benzothiazoles (8), were also prepared. Several compounds in this series were shown to be K… Expand
