The palladium-catalyzed carbonylation of 2-(propynylthio)benzimidazoles bearing a terminal triple bond leads to 2-methyl-1-thia-4a,9-diazafluoren-4-ones instead of the previously reported 3-methyl isomers, as unequivocally established by XRD analysis of a representative product. A correction is therefore provided here in order to rectify the previous erroneous assignment of the position of the methyl group. Moreover, the process has been generalized to substrates bearing an internal triple bond, which lead to 3-alkyl-2-methyl-1-thia-4a,9-diazafluoren-4-ones, whose structure was confirmed by XRD analysis of two representative derivatives.
