Previous conclusions regarding the reactions of 5-azacinnoline with mild bases at the C(4) atom were confirmed: the corresponding 4-mercapto-5-azacinnoline derivatives are formed in the reaction of this compound with primary, secondary, and tertiary mercaptans and thiophenol under mild conditions. The effect of the temperature, basic catalysts, and oxidizing agents on the yields of the reaction products was studied. Assumptions regarding the mechanism of the process are expressed.
