Abstract

A new and efficient synthetic approach to [gem-bis(alkylthio)vinyl]allenes has been developed involving iron(III)-catalyzed dehydration C(sp2)–C(sp2) coupling of tertiary propargyl alcohols and α-oxo ketene dithioacetals, affording a variety of [gem-bis(alkylthio)vinyl]allenes in good to excellent yields.
