Aminosalicylates are derivatives of the highly functionalized compound aminosalicylic acid. Benzothiazoyl salicylates were obtained in this work from the highly functionalized aminosalicylic acid by reacting ammonium thioureas as a nucleophile to aminosalicylates that were derived from aminosalicylic acid and bromine was used as the cyclising agent. Results obtained indicated that it was the brominated cyclised product that was formed.
Key words: Aminosalicylates, aminosalicylic acid, benzothiazoles, thioureas
