A Simple Route to 2,3-Dihydronaphtho[1,2-b]thiophenes and Naphtho[1,2-b]thiophenes Bearing Trifluoromethyl Groups by Aromatic Nucleophilic Substitution of N,N-Dimethyl-2,4-bis(trifluoroacetyl)-1-naphthylamine

2,3-Dihydronaphtho[1,2-b]thiophenes (2, 4, 5, and 7) and naphtho[1,2-b]thiophenes (3 and 8) bearing trifluoromethyl groups were easily synthesized by aromatic nucleophilic nitrogen-sulfur exchange reaction of N,N-dimethyl-2,4-bis(trifluoroacetyl)-1-naphthylamine (1) with thioglycolic acids and with benzyl mercaptan, followed by cyclization (cyclodehydration).
