Alpha-substituted hydrazones obtained from 1,2-diaza-1,3-butadienes and methylenic or methinic activated substrates gave rise to a wide range of cyclic compounds. In particular, in the presence of thionyl chloride as solvent-reagent, they were transformed into 1,2,3-thiadiazoles,(1) with selenium oxychloride in new 4-substituted 2,3-dihydro-1,2,3-selenadiazoles, while with selenium dioxide, they were transformed into 4-substituted 1,2,3-selenadiazoles. We have also examined the nucleophilic behavior of 1,2,3-thiadiazole 4a in the reaction with 1,2-diaza-1,3-butadienes that produced, under basic conditions, 4-hydrazono-1-(1,2,3-thiadiazolyl)pentane derivatives. This event represents an interesting example of stereoselective synthesis because it leads exclusively to the formation of the RR/SS racemic mixture. These latter compounds, treated with thionyl chloride, gave the corresponding 1,3-di-1,2,3-thiadiazolylpropane derivatives, while with sodium methoxide they afforded 1,2,3-thiadiazolyl-2-oxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-pyrrole systems.
