Four thioxo-1,8-naphthalimide derivatives, 9,10-dihydro-7H- benzo[de]imidazo[2,1-a]isoquinoline-7-thione and 7H-benzimidazo[2,1- a]benzo[de]isoquinoline-7-thione were synthesized by imidation of thioxo- 1,8-naphthalic anhydrides with amines. Some discussions have been given concerning the mechanism of the imidation reaction of the dithioxo-1,8- naphthalic anhydride.
