Abstract

Reacting aroyl chlorides with an equivalent of potassium selenocyanate, followed by treating with an equivalent of 1,2,4-tri-tert-butylaniline at room temperature, resulted in the expected selenoureas and unusual diselenazoles. The selenation of selenourea by Woollins Reagent gave a new selenoformamide. Nucleophilic addition of selenoureas with acyl bromides led to the formation of new carbamimidoselenoates rather than the expected 1,3-selenazoles. The novel compounds prepared were characterised spectroscopically and crystallographically.
