Abstract: The addition of 2-aminobenzonitrile to phenyl isothiocyanate repro­ ducing the procedure described in literature [1] did not lead to 1-phenyl-3-(2-cyanophenyl)thiourea but to the product of its cyclization, i.e. 3-phenyl-4-imino-l,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinazoline-2-thione. This was the only product of the addition, even under varied conditions. The reaction of 2-aminobenzonitrile with 4-nitrophenyl isothiocyanate under various conditions was studied. The only product formed was 4-imino-3-(4-nitrophenyl)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinazoline-2-thione. l-Phenyl-3-(2-cyanophenyl)thiourea was prepared by the addition of aniline to 2-isothiocyanatobenzonitrile at room temperature in the mixture dichloromethane—petroleum ether. So far unknown 2-isothiocyanatoben­zonitrile was prepared by the reaction of thiophosgene with 2-aminoben­zonitrile in the mixture dichloromethane—water.
