Three new alternative synthetic strategies based on reactions of hydrazonoyl halides 3 with 2-methylthiouracil 2 and treatment of either 2 -pyrimidinyl thiohydrazonates 8 or the diazonium coupling products of active (pyrimidin-2-ylthio)methylene compounds 12 with sodium ethoxide in ethanol are described for the title compounds. The mechanisms and regiochemistry of the studied reactions are discussed.
