Preparation of bis-heterazolidines bonded by a CH2, CH 2-S-CH2 or CH2SCH2SCH2 groups through their nitrogen atoms is reported: 3-(1,3-oxazolidin-3-ylmethyl)- 1,3-oxazolidine 1, 3-(4,4-dimethyl-1,3-oxazolidin-3-ylmethyl)-1,3-oxazolidine 2, 3-(1,3-diazolidin-3-ylmethyl)-1,3-diazolidine 3, 3-(1,3-thiazolidin-3-ylmethyl) -1,3-thiazolidine 4, 3-(1,3-thiazolidin-3-ylmethylsulfanylmethyl)-1,3- thiazolidine 5 and 3-(1,3-oxazolidin-3-ylmethylsulfanylmethyl-sulfanylmethyl)-1, 3-oxazolidine 6. The solid state structures of 4 and 5 were determined by X-ray diffraction analyses. BH3-THF reduction reactions of compounds 1-6 were investigated. N→BH3 mono- and di-adducts of 1-6 were prepared and their structures calculated (ab initio 3-21G*).
