Reaction of two dithio esters and a new sulfine (S-thiocarbonyl oxide) with various aryl- and alkyllithiums at -78 °C afforded dithio acetals or their oxides, arising from a thiophilic addition. The intermediate carbanions can be trapped by alkyl halides or an aldehyde. This provides a new entry to pyridyl acyl anions, "Umpolung" synthons.
