Abstract: Sulfapyridine (SP) is an antibacterial compound that is used as such and also the active metabolite of sulfosalzazine (SASP) which shows antiphlogistic, antibacterial and immuno­modulatoric properties. Sulfapyridine is also used to help control dermatitis herpetiformis (Duhring's disease), a skin problem. It has been reported, that sulfapyridine is metabolized to 5-hydroxysulfapyridine but no synthesis of this proposed metabolite has been published.We will report on the synthesis of thia and other potential metabolites of sulfapyridine.
