Abstract
The reaction of 2-amino-tetrahydrobenzo[b]thiophene derivatives 1ad with ethoxycarbonyl isothiocyanate (2) gave the
tetrahydrobenzo[b]thiophen-2-thiourea derivatives 3ad. The latter products underwent ready cyclizations when heated
in sodium ethoxide solution to give annulated derivatives 4ad. Compounds 3ad also underwent hetero-cyclizations to
give fused thiophene derivatives with antibacterial and antifungal activities.

Keywords: Thiophene, pyrazole, pyrimidine, fused derivatives
