ClCH2(C(OEt)3 (I) was prepd. by chlorination of CH3C(OEt)3 with N-chlorosuccinimide. I underwent cyclocondensation reactions with aminophenols or -thiophenols to afford benzoxazoles or benzothiazoles II (X = O, S; Rn = H, 5-Br, 5- or 6-CF3, 5,7-F2, etc.). I and 3-amino-2-mercaptopyridine or 2-amino-3-hydroxypyridine gave 2-chloromethylthiazolo[5,4-b]pyridine or -oxazolo[4,5-b]pyridine, resp.
