The rearrangement reaction of thebaine (1) with methanesulfonic acid, in the presence of hydrogen sulfide, resulted in a sulfide-type bisaporphine 13, instead of the expected thiol 12. The acidic hydrolysis of the thiocyanato derivatives 3, 9, 20 and 21, obtained from thebaine (1), as well as the reduction of 9 and 21 with sodium borohydride yielded disulfide-type bisaporphines 16 and 23.
