Four selenium analogues of the antithyroid drug 6-n-propyl-2-thiouracil (PTU), of formulae RSeU, (R = methyl (Me) (1), ethyl (Et) (2), n-propyl (nPr) (3), and isopropyl (iPr) 4), have been synthesized. Reaction of 1-4 with diiodine in a 1:1 molar ratio in dichloromethane results in the formation of [(RSeU)I(2)] (R = methyl (5), ethyl (6), n-propyl (7) and isopropyl (8)). All compounds have been characterized by elemental analysis, FT-Raman, FT-IR, UV/Vis, (1)H-, (13)C-, (77)Se-1D and -2D NMR spectroscopy, and ESI-MS spectrometric techniques. Recrystallization of 4 from dichloromethane afforded (4 center dot CH(2)Cl(2))- Crystals of [(nPrSeU)I(2)] (7), a charge-transfer complex, were obtained from chloroform solutions, while crystallization of 6 and 7 from acetone afforded the diselenides [N-(6-Et-4-pyrimidone)(6-EtSeU)(2)] (9 center dot 2H(2)O) and [N-(6-nPr-4-pyrimidone)(6-nPrSeU)(2)] (10) as oxidation products. Recrystallization of 7 from methanol/acetonitrile solutions led to deselenation with the formation of 6-n-propyl-2-uracil (nPrU) (11). [(nPrSeU)I(2)] (7) was found to be a charge-transfer complex with a Se-I bond. These results are discussed in relation to the mechanism of action of antithyroid drugs. (EN)
