Synthesis of thirteen substituted 5-(2-hydroxyethyl)-2-phenylimino-1,3-thiazolidin-4-ones is described starting from easily available and stable S-(2-oxo-2,3-dihydro-1-benzofuran-3-yl)isothiuronium bromides. The transformation proceeds under mild conditions, is very simple to perform, and is applicable to a wide range of substituents on isothiuronium moiety. Some 1,3-thiazolidin-4-ones show dynamic NMR behavior in solution because of prototropy tautomerism and E-/Z-stereoisomerism. Thermochromic behavior was observed for all synthesized compound.
