A convenient synthesis of 1,2,3-thiadiazoles and 1,2,3-selenadiazoles was achieved using an ionic liquid as a novel soluble support. Ionic liquid-supported sulfonyl hydrazine was synthesized and reacted with a number of ketones to afford the corresponding ionic liquid-supported hydrazones that were converted to 1,2,3-thiadiazoles in the presence of thionyl chloride. The reaction of ionic liquid-supported hydrazones with selenium dioxide in acetonitrile afforded 1,2,3-selenadiazoles. The advantages of this methodology were the ease of workup, simple reaction conditions, and high purity.
