This communication deals with tandem synthesis of new aza angular phenothiazine ring systems of industrial importance via Suzuki-Miyaura reaction. 1,4-Bis-(2-hydroxy-3,5-di-tert-butyl)piperazine (ligand) was obtained by treating 40% paraformaldehyde solution, piperazine and 2,4-di-tert-butylphenol. This was combined with diphenylphospinobutane chloride Pd(dppb)Cl to form a complex catalyst system. 2-Aminopyridine-3-thiol one of the key intermediates was obtained through thiocyanation of 2-aminopyridine followed by alkaline hydrolysis of 2-amino-3-thiocyanatopyridine. 2-Aminopyridine-3-thiol was then treated with 2,3-dichloro-1,4-naphthoquinone to give a new aza angular phenothiazine ring which coupled with 3-chlorophenyl boronic acid in the presence of the complex catalyst system above to furnish another new phenothiazine polycyclic ring system 6-(3-chlorophenyl)-11-azabenzo[a] phenothiazin-5-one.
