2-Formyl-4-nitrobenzenesulphenyl chloride has been synthesised and its reactions with ketones examined. A practical route to a range of 2-substituted, 5-nitro-benzo [b] thiophenes and certain 2,3-dihydro aldols of the same system has been described. By reaction of the sulphenyl chloride with isopropyl methyl ketone the 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro benzo [b] thiepin system was formed. Extension of the latter reaction to include selected cyclic ketones permitted the synthesis of novel tricyclic analogues and the crystal structure of one member of the latter group has been unambiguously determined by the X-ray method. Some aspects of the behaviour of these tricyclic compounds, in basic environment, have been described.
