    Three new alfa-oxo thione S-(tert-alkylimides) 3 have been prepared. Thiocarbonyl S- (tert-alkylimides) react with chlorine and bromine, but not with other halogens or pseudohalogens, to give the corresponding dihalomethylene compounds. The pyrolysis of 3 leads to the corresponding 1,2,4-trithiolanes, presumably via intermediate thiosulfines. Ozonization of 3 gives the corresponding alfa-diketones.
