3-Aminocrotonitrile reacts with H2S in the presence of a phase transfer catalyst to yield 2,6-dimethyl-3-cyano-4-thioxothiopyran (liquid-solid catalysis) or the 4-oxo homolog (liquid-liquid catalysis). In the absence of hydrogen sulfide, 2,6-dimethyl-3-cyano-4-pyrone is obtained. The reaction mechanism is discussed.
