This paper presents an update review on recent advances and developments in chemical fixation of CO2 with 2-aminobenzenethiols into benzothiazol(on)es. For clarity, the review is divided into two main sections. The first section is a discussion of the synthesis of benzothiazole derivatives via cyclization of 2-aminobenzenethiols with CO2, while the second consists of an overview of cyclocarbonylation of 2-aminobenzenethiols utilizing CO2 for the synthesis of benzothiazolone derivatives.
