Reactions of N-(6,11-dihydrodibenzo[b,e]thiepin-11-yl)chloroacetamide (II) with dimethylamine, morpholine, and 2-(1-piperazinyl)ethanol afforded the amino amides III-V. Substitution reactions of 11-chloro-6,11-dihydrodibenzo[b,e]thiepin with ethylenediamine and N,N-dimethylethylenediamine gave the diamines VI and VII. 6,11-Dihydrodibenzo[b,e]thiepin-11-amine (I) was treated with ethyl chloroacetate and ethyl 2-bromopropionate to give the amino esters X and XI which were transformed on the one hand to the acids VIII and IX, and to the amides XII and XIII on the other. (6,11-Dihydrodibenzo[b,e]thiepin -11-yl)methylamine (XVIa) and (10,11-dihydro-5H-dibenzo[a,d]cycloheptene-5-yl)methylamine (XVIb) were transformed via the chloroacetamides XVIIa and XVIIb to the (4-methyl-1-piperazinyl)acetamides XVa and XVb. Compound V showed local anaesthetic and antiarrhythmic activity, the diamine VII had antihistamine and antireserpine effects, the amide XII was found to be an anticonvulsant, and the piperazines XVa and XVb inhibited effectively the formation of the indomethacin-induced gastric ulcers in rats.
