Abstract

The compound 1-phenyl-5-vinylimidazolidine-2-thione was previously reported to be the causative agent in the outbreak referred to as Spanish toxic oil syndrome. X-ray crystallography, together with nuclear magnetic resonance and infra-red spectroscopy, now show the correct structure of this compound to be N-(5-vinyl-1,3-thiazolidin-2-ylidene)phenylamine (5-VTPA). Data for the structural characterization of 5-VTPA and the closely related isomer N-(4-vinyl-1,3-thiazolidin-2-ylidene)phenylamine are reported.
