Tetrahedron, 70 (40). pp. 7306-7317. ISSN 0040-4020

Tetrazolo- and 1,2,4-oxadiazolo-fused derivatives of the antitumour, antibiotic, DNA-interactive pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]benzodiazepines and their pyrrolobenzothiadiazepine derivatives have been produced as analogues of a 1,2,3-triazolo-fused pyrrolobenzothiadiazepine which was shown to be a Glut-1 transporter inhibitor with potential as an antitumour agent. The tetrazolo-fused systems were produced by intramolecular 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition between an azide and a nitrile. The 1,2,4-oxadiazolo systems were produced by nitrile oxide cycloadditions to pyrrolobenzothiadiazepines which were in turn produced from a 2-(azidobenzenesulfonyl)-1,2-thiazine 1-oxide. The latter species underwent a phosphite mediated one-pot sulfur extrusion, ring contraction and azide to amine conversion to form 1-(aminobenzenesulfonyl)pyrroles. Bischler-Napieralski ring closure gave the pyrrolobenzothiadiazepines.
