3-Mercaptopropionic Acid: A New Tool in the Synthesis of Symmetrical Diaryl Sulfides from Unactivated Aryl Iodides as Substitute for Anhydrous Sodium Sulfide
17 September 2002 (online)
A series of symmetrical diaryl sulfides has been prepared by the coppercatalyzed reaction of 3-mercaptopropionic acid with unactivated aryl iodides. The yields are comparable with those obtained using anhydrous sodium sulfide under optimized reaction conditions.
