Facile and scalable synthesis of the fused-ring heterocycles thieno[3,2-b]thiophene and thieno[3,2-b]furan



Facile and scalable synthesis of the fused-ring heterocycles thieno[3,2-b]thiophene and thieno[3,2-b]furan



Organic Letters 11(14): 3144-3147



An optimized synthetic methodology which allows for efficient and scalable access to the important fused-ring heterocycle thieno[3,2-b]thiophene and the first reported isolation of thieno[3,2-b]furan is presented. The properties of thieno[3,2-b]furan were assessed through a detailed analysis of the NMR data and an investigation of the chemical reactivity. Thieno[3,2-b]furan is chemically robust and offers good selectivity toward functionalization at the 2-position via bromination and the 5-position via deprotonation.
