The synthesis and selected reactions of the versatile heterocycle 2-amino-3-cyanomethylsulfonyl-4,5-dimethylfuran is reported. In particular, cyclization reaction of the aminofuran yielded a number of novel furo[3,2-b]thiazine 1,1-dioxides. Additionally, a novel tetracyclic system, namely a pyrrolo[2′,3′:5,6]-[1,4]thiazino[3,2-b]quinoline 4,4-dioxide, is prepared via an intramolecular triple-cyclization in which the furan ring is opened and reclosed as a pyrrole.
