A facile and efficient approach for the synthesis of 3-arylthiazol-2(3<i>H</i>)-one

<p>A facile and efficient method for synthesis of 3-arylthiazol-2(3<i>H</i>)-one through the reaction of acyl azide and 1,4-dithiane-2,5-diol was reported. This reaction proceeded at 80 °C at first and then in acidic condition at room temperature, to afford products in good yields for a wide range of substrates and a possible mechanism has also been proposed.</p>
