Abstract: Benzothiazolium and benzoxazolium bromides 4, 5 were synthesized either by one-pot condensation of substituted 4-oxochromene-3-carboxaldehydes 1 with 2-methylbenzothiazole (2a) or 2-methylbenzoxazole (2b) and benzyl bromide or by condensation of 1 with 2-methylbenzothiazolium or 2-methylbenzoxazolium bromides 3 under microwave irradiation or by the classical heating. The advantage of microwave irradiation in comparison with classical reactions was reflected in the significantly reduced reaction time and increased yields. Reactions of resulting benzothiazolium salt 4b with primary and secondary amines led to 2-substituted derivatives 6 or phenylpyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridine 7.

Keywords: benzoxazolium bromides, benzothiazolium bromodes, microwave irradiation, 4-oxochromene-3-carboxaldehydes
