Synthesis and Antitumor Activity of the Thiazoline and Thiazine Multithioether


A series of novel multithioether derivatives were synthesized by the combination of thiazoline and thiazine with dibro- mides and their structures were characterized by IR, 1H NMR, MS and elemental analysis. The synthesized derivatives were tested for antitumor activity.
