A highly regioselective inverse electron-demand aza-Diels–Alder reaction of α,β-unsaturated thioesters with 1,2-diaza-1,3-dienes generated in situ from α-halogeno hydrazones was developed. With α,β-unsaturated thioesters as CS dienophiles, the developed protocol enables the formation of diverse 3,6-dihydro-2H-1,3,4-thiadiazine derivatives in excellent yields. In the presence of lithium aluminum hydride, 3,6-dihydro-2H-1,3,4-thiadiazine derivatives could be further transformed into 5,6-dihydro-4H-1,3,4-thiadiazines in good yields.
