Abstract

We have developed a convenient method for the synthesis of unsymmetrical diaryl disulfides under mild conditions in excellent yields. The described method is based on the straightforward preparation of 5,5-dimethyl-2-thioxo-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinane-2-sulfenyl bromide from readily available 5,5-dimethyl-2-sulfanyl-2-thioxo-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinane or bis(5,5-dimethyl-2-thioxo-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinan-2-yl) disulfide. The unsymmetrical diaryl disulfides can be obtained from aromatic thiol derivatives bearing electron-withdrawing or electron-donating groups.
