The Mannich-type reaction of N-methylmorpholinium 4-aryl-3-cyano-6-oxo-1,4,5,6-tetrahydropyridine-2-thiolates with 2-R-propanals (ocean propanal, isobutyraldehyde) and primary aromatic amines afforded 7-aryl-2-R-2-methyl-3-arylamino-5-oxo-2,3,6,7-tetrahydro-5Н-thiazolo[3,2-a]pyridine-8-carbonitriles in modest yields; the structure of a key compound was confirmed by X-ray crystal structure analysis. The mechanism of the reaction is discussed.
