Abstract: A new series of 1,2,3-selenadiazoles containing an aryl or a 3-arylisoquinoline sulfanyl moiety at carbons 4 and 5, respectively,
was prepared by cyclization of the respective semicarbazones in the presence of selenium(II) oxide and tetrahydrofuran at
70–75°C. Semicarbazones required for the reaction were obtained from 2-((3-arylisoquinolin-1-yl)sulfanyl)-1-phenylethanones,
I, by a reaction with semicarbazide hydrochloride in ethanol/water mixture and potassium acetate base.
Keywords: 1,2,3-selenadiazoles – isoquinolines – cyclization – semicarbazones – phenylethanones
